ABC60's (aka ABC 60s Radio) is the only radio station in Ireland that exceptionally plays the most popular hits and music from 1960's.

In North America, Europe and Oceania, the decade was particularly revolutionary in terms of popular music, as it saw the formation and evolution of rock.

This was the decade when currently still very well known bands and musicians started their careers: The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Who, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Mamas & the Papas, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Beach Boys, Janis Joplin and others. 1960's  was also the decade when the famous Woodstock Festival took place in August, 1969.

At the beginning of the 1960s, pop and rock and roll trends of the 1950s continued; nevertheless, the rock and roll of the decade before started to merge into a more international, eclectic variant known as rock. By the mid-1960s, rock and roll in its purest form was gradually overtaken by pop rock, beat, psychedelic rock, blues rock, and folk rock, which had grown in popularity.

Towards the decade's end, genres such as baroque pop, sunshine pop, bubblegum pop, progressive rock and heavy metal started to grow popular, with the latter two finding greater success in the following decade. Furthermore, the 1960s saw funk and soul music rising in popularity; rhythm and blues in general remained popular, and this style was commonly associated to girl groups of the time, whose fusion of R&B and gospel with rock and roll enjoyed success until the mid-part of the decade. Aside from the popularity of rock and R&B music in the 1960s, Latin American as well as Jamaican and Cuban music achieved a degree of popularity throughout the decade, with genres such as bossa nova, the cha-cha-cha, ska, and calypso being popular.

Unfortunately I cannot access ABC 50s and 60s anymore. Loved this station, but ABC 60's is also an excellent station.
Such variety! This is the real 60s right here, not just the small handful of songs you get to hear on commercial radio.

Came across this station last week, I listen to it every day now for a couple at home and all the time when I am out walking, brings me back in time. Brillant.
An absolutely brilliant radio station. I hear so many songs that I have "forgotten" and the memories just hit me. I could listen to 60s music all day.
Hey. My name is Edwin and I live in the Netherlands. I listen to ABC 60s and 70s via the internet. I am almost 70 years old and every time I hear the music from my childhood I am happy and relive my beautiful young years. thanks ABC for the pleasure you give me.
It's good to hear all the oldies, but goodies..Don't go for the crap they call music these days..
Hey, just found this treasure of a station. What a nice mix. Thx :)

pls remember we are listening to 'Canned Music," not live songs, and therefore the often repeatance, sometimes Ilike to hear the same song or instrumental 'Wheels, Rider in the Sky and more such". There are other radio stations ( canned music) to listeneing to as well, most have a repeatance rate too, never mind, enjoy..All are great Oldies
