About Radio Rock UK
Radio Rock UK is a Classic, Progressive Rock Internet radio station. We began broadcasting on the 25th June 2000. 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 or fifty years ago.
