Facts and stats

Vintage Music Radio is a North-East based quasi-local radio station serving Darlington, County Durham, Richmond and surrounding areas on FM and across North Yorkshire on DAB Digital Radio.

The station was owned by UKRD Group until March 2017 when The View TV Group and radio operator, Darren Shortt acquired the station.

On June 30 2017, as part of the sale of the station, Thirsk and Northallerton in North Yorkshire switched to UKRD's York based station Minster FM. Listeners in those areas will be able to continue to listen to Rathergood on DAB Digital Radio.

The station relaunched as Rathergood Radio on August 1 2017 and then again as Vintage Music Radio in December 2018.
