Radio Sounds Familiar originally started broadcasting on March 1st 2009 on the ‘LIVE 365’ Broadcast platform.
Live 365 ceased trading on January 31st 2016 sadly with the result of thousands of their affiliate station having to close down.
Broadcasting resumed in February 2016 using the 'SAM Broadcast Cloud' platform with a bigger and ever growing playlist.
The music mix of the station is a bouquet of TV, Film and Radio theme tunes, Cues and Curios as well as Library music of the type used by the Television companies of the 60’s and 70’s, all segued with old adverts and TV idents of the period.

I am a sucker for this kind of nostalgia. Just can't help but grin from ear to ear when i hear an old TV theme http://pushnote.net/c1n3
