About Us
The UK 1950s Radio Station was set up as a direct response to some of our listeners on our sister station: The UK 1940s Radio Station. They enjoyed the early rock and roll of the 1940s and wanted us to include more of the 1950s, both rock and roll and in general. We were able to include some where the song itself was a cover version of an earlier song, but as the 1940s station does not play any songs written after 1949 we needed to set up a station that does. It gives our listeners more choice as well as embracing new listeners who specifically like the 1950s.


Show Presenters Required
We are still developing our programme schedule and more presenters are needed. There is no fee but if you have a love of the 1950s and think you have a voice for radio, we would be very pleased to hear from you. email us at enquiries@1950sukradio.co.uk for more information.

About 1950s Music

Rock and Roll may have been born in the 1940s but by the 1950s it was growing up fast. However, the 1950s was not all about Rock and Roll. It was a very diverse decade with music styles of the 1940s competing in the charts quite respectably with the many emerging styles. Many of the 1940s singers progressed too. Television and Films also embraced the new styles and by the end of the decade Britain had introduced the weekly music show: Juke Box Jury. The hysterical screams of teenage girls echoed around the theatres of Britain and the boys tried to dress and act like their music heroes.

The wide variety of music available in the 1950s is echoed in The UK 1950s Radio Station. It’s not just about Rock and Roll. You will also be able to hear Jazz, Big Band, the delightful crooners who continued to record in the 1950s, Skiffle, Bebop and Rockabilly. Basically, if it was recorded in the 1950s, then it has a good chance of being played on our 1950s radio station. For a more detailed guide of the programmes being played, please visit our Programme Schedule page. You can listen to The UK 1950s Radio Station 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be accessed by clicking on the play now button on our website, via Tunein and on internet radios (such as Roberts, etc.).
