Absolute Radio plans special programming for VE Anniversary on May 8

Absolute Radio is running a 24-hour pop up station next month on 08 May, playing jazz, swing and big band music from the 1940s to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

The service will broadcast across the UK on 1215AM in place of the main Absolute Radio station for the day, and will also be on DAB in London.

Absolute Radio 40s is being paid for through the Audio Content Fund, which is supporting the initiative as part of its special funding to support audiences during the Coronavirus restrictions. Events around the UK to mark the anniversary of VE Day on 8th May have been postponed because of the current social distancing rules.
