Smooth About Us

Find out everything you need to know about Smooth Radio

Always the best music...

Smooth Radio is where always the best music plays. The songs we play are the best from the past five decades. 

You can now listen to us across the country on FM and AM, on Digital Radio, online via smoothradio.com or on our mobile apps.

It's a station with an upbeat character, generous spirit and a warm personality. We blend great music with engaging personalities but it's the music that's at the centre of the listening experience - and the way we make you feel whenever you tune in. Each song we play is a life landmark and unlocks the best times of our life.

The Smooth Radio experience is about playing the soundtrack to your life - we play the biggest and best songs from the past 40 years, brought to you by talented and intelligent presenters.


Just like Smooth's radio output, our website celebrates the best music, while also covering the latest TV, film and showbiz news that our audience will want to know.

We aim to not only report on the latest news regarding Smooth's core artists, but also looking back on the greatest moments in the world of music and entertainment, and in particular the best ever icons.
