The Wireless Radio

We have important information to share with listeners of The Wireless Radio.

The Wireless is an internet radio station run by Age UK. We play music we enjoy and remember fondly. A bespoke jukebox, if you like, that transports us through time to our youth, our romances, our heartbreaks, our holidays, our successes and beyond.

The Wireless plays in all our Age UK shops and is available for the public to listen to via internet radio stations such as TuneIn Radio.

The Wireless is changing

We are planning some changes that mean The Wireless will no longer be producing shows with presenters or broadcasting in London via DAB digital radio. We're also saying goodbye to the Alexa Wireless Skill and the Later Life podcast.

The Wireless Radio will still be playing on internet radio, where it will continue to play the music you love as well as the occasional update about our work.

You can continue to listen to The Wireless on internet radio on TuneIn Radio.

If you would like to speak to someone at Age UK about these changes, you can email us on or call 0800 169 8787. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

About The Wireless

Since 2012, The Wireless has provided a mixture of voices you know and love, played music to sing and dance along with, and shared helpful advice for later life. It's also provided the soundtrack to Age UK's shops across England and Wales.
