Eagle Radio is launching a brand-new sister station playing music from the 1970s.

Eagle 70s is available on DAB Digital Radio, via the Eagle Radio website and the free Eagle Radio app.

The station, which is ‘home to the 70s and more’ launched at 11am on Monday, October 16 (2017).

Aimed at fans of the local radio station who prefer slightly older music, Eagle 70s will play the best hits of the era.

Director of content at Eagle Radio and Eagle 70s, Peter Gordon, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to bring our audience a brand-new offering right across our two counties.

“When so many media outlets are looking at options around downsizing and retreating, Eagle is making a bold statement by launching a brand-new radio station.

“We’re dedicated to providing our listeners with content they want and it’s clear to us from talking to our audience that there’s a market for people who love our station, but who prefer classics from a classic decade.”

Eagle Radio managing director Paul Marcus added: “I’m so excited to expand the Eagle brand and this is a clear investment from us in providing more of what our audience wants.”

Eagle Radio will be celebrating the arrival of its new sister station by dedicating an hour to the 1970s on a Sunday straight after the Chart Show.

    Wishing the initiative every success. I have memories of 1960-61 Radio Luxemburg and especially the AFN American Forces Network we used to listen to on our new-fangled transistor radios rather than dreary monopoly BBC.
