This is the first year that I have seen or heard Regatta Radio.
The music that they play is very good indeed, Rolling Stones, and up to date stuff as well!
There is a high proportion of talk during the daytime but intersperced with music which is just played without intro and outro so far!
There usual sponsors Invesco Perpetual decided not to allocated funds this year. But thankfully they have raised the money and have a new sponsor.
Reception here is good in Stereo but they are also on the Internet and have android and iphone apps.
