Absolute 80s live

The UK's 80s radio station.

Absolute 80s is a digital radio station in the United Kingdom created for "people with an inability to act their age" that want to reconnect with the tunes of their 1980s youth.
On 4 December 2009 Absolute Radio 80s was launched replacing Absolute Xtreme. "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)" by the Beastie Boys was the first song played by this station.
On 14 May 2010, it started broadcasting in mono at 64kbps on Digital One national DAB digital radio. On 29 February 2016, it upgraded to 80kbps in mono with Sound Digital multiplex, but it continued to broadcast on Digital One until the end of April 2016.
