History Of Our Station
Angel Radio Isle Of Wight’s first FM broadcast was for a period of 28 days in the autumn of 1999, this came after a successful broadcast of just 6 days to the City of Portsmouth by Angel Radio in February 1999.
Angel Radio’s founder, Tony Smith, conceived the idea to provide a unique nostalgic radio station broadcasting music recorded from 1900 up to a cut off point of the end of 1959, plus documentaries on the artistes and musical styles of this era. In addition community related programmes featuring local charities and community groups would be actively encouraged. This would satisfy a need for older people who require relevent information, and for people who enjoy nostalgia. The original cut off date of the end of 1959 has now been extended to include music from the 1960s.
