all about us

The home of good time oldies is more than it first appears.

Take a look at our story.

Now playing

Well, not quite but it was 40 years ago this year that it all began.


Classic Hits Forest Gold was launched in 2002 to cater for patients at St. Margaret's, Brentwood and Saffron Walden Community Hospitals in Essex UK. We are a part of Radio Forest Community Broadcasting, a charity organisation that has been broadcasting since 1978 (Registered as a charity with the Charity Commison in the UK. Reg. No. 277847).


Since our lauch we received many requests to make our service available outside the NHS so patients could continue listening to us from home. By 2010 we had raised enough funds to make this happen and now we have a dedicated following within our community, right across the UK and across the world.


We have no paid staff and are run by a team of over fifty volunteers. An elected committee consisting of Chairman, Vice Chairman, Administration Manager, Finanance Manager, Technical Manager, Programme Manager and Fundraising & PR Manager run the organisation on a day to day basis. The charity is self funding and all money raised goes directly to provide the services we offer. You can see our latest reports and financial accounts at the Charity Commission website.
