Radio City is based in the incredible St. Johns Beacon (also known as Radio City Tower) that was built in 1969 and opened by Queen Elizabeth II. The tower is 138 meters tall (452 feet) and was the tallest structure in Liverpool until West Tower finished completion in 2008, which is currently the city's tallest skyscraper. Radio City Tower is currently the 32nd tallest building in the UK.


The station forms part of the Hits Radio Network. You can expect to find upbeat music, news, sport and great talk shows including breakfast and drive time shows.


You can listen to Radio City by tuning into their frequency on FM: 96.7 MHz and on DAB.

This Liverpool institution has been entertaining the Liverpool City Region for more than 50 years. With local legends like Tony Snell, Linda McDermott, Roger Phillips, Paul Salt, Jermaine Foster & Sean Styles entertaining us morning, noon and night.


Radio Merseyside brings you local news, sports, music and a wide variety of talk shows that integrate the Liverpool community brilliantly; hosting phone-ins with new and regular callers and weekly competitions such as the fantastic Scouse Nous(e) which was sadly discontinued recently, but don't worry, Snelly replaced it with an equally great segment.


The team at Radio Merseyside really bring to life the Scouse sense of humour and interact with the local residents perfectly; engaging with them about their issues, any troubles they are going through, to celebrate good news or just to have a good chat about everything and nothing.


You can listen to BBC Radio Merseyside by tuning into their frequency on FM: 95.8 MHz and on DAB.
