Hits of all time 

Gold radio is a network of oldie’s radio stations, which was formed by the merger of the Capital Gold network and the Classic Gold Network in August 2007. Gold aim their music at people aged 50 or over.

In 1999, Capital Gold actively encouraged listeners to switch to DAB Digital Radio as the added benefits of digital enable stereo broadcasts for the first time in its history.

Gold radio became an incredibly popular from all radio stations UK  and played a wide range of music from well-established music superstars, from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s and added a fair amount of 1990s music and later.

It has also released a CD compilation early 2001 called Capital Gold Legends, featuring well-known artists such as Blondie, Queen and Tina Turner. This was followed in November 2001 by Capital Gold Legends Vol. 2 and in March 2002 of Volume 3. It released another series in November 2002 with Sixties Legends, Seventies Legends and Eighties Legends.

Gold radio is now owned by Global Radio, although the local stations in Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton are run under the franchise to Orion Media.
