Radio Rock UK: 1970's Classic British Rock & Progressive
Radio Rock UK© is a British based progressive rock Internet radio station. We began
broadcasting on the 25th June 2000, and today the station has a regular audience that is
located throughout the UK and Europe and North & South America, and in Asia & Australia.
Radio Rock UK© broadcasts a mixture of British classic rock and progressive music
from the 1970s with some 60s and a little 80s. The music we play is not what you might
find on the average classic rock radio station. Radio Rock UK© plays the tracks
that other stations no longer play: the forgotten tracks and the long twenty minute or
even thirty minute tracks. This station looks back to an era when rock musicians were
beginning to take their art seriously; though some would say too seriously. But it was
a time when people began to really listen to popular music, and listen for long periods
of time: rock songs had begun to resemble symphonies. The music of these bands was largely
produced without the sole consideration of being commercial, band members preferred instead
to make music of their own choice. Many of these progressive rock bands have endured, withstanding
the test of time, and remain equally as popular today as they were forty years ago.
Thank you all for being loyal listeners over the past 15ż years. We will be trying out new broadcasting options over the coming weeks,
and our latest news will be posted here.
