Information about the radio

Absolute 80s launched at 7.00 pm on 4 December 2009 replacing Absolute Xtreme.
The marketing plan for Absolute 80s started with targeted sampling at 80s events such as Madness, Pet Shop Boys and Depeche Mode at the O2 Arena, Erasure at the NEC Birmingham and Simple Minds at the Wembley Arena. The first track to play on the station was (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!) by the Beastie Boys.
On Friday 14 May 2010, Absolute 80s launched, broadcasting in mono at 64kbps, on Digital One national DAB digital radio.
On 29 February 2016, the station switched to the newly launched Sound Digital multiplex (an "upgrade" to 80kbps in mono) although it continued to broadcast on Digital One until the end of April 2016.
