About Downtown Radio

Listen to the internet radio of Downtown Radio live, which was the first commercial radio station of Northern Ireland in 1976. In 1990, Downtown Radio launched its sister station, Cool FM for the younger listeners with contemporary hot music, and in 2015, launched Downtown Country sister station for the lovers of country music. The station is in the ownership of Bauer Radio Ltd., and member of the Planet Radio station fleet, and part of Bauer's Hits Radio Network.
The broadcaster brings a mature playlist, which lines up the best melodic pop music started from the time, when the station itself started, to the millenium, seasoned with some newer tuneful ones. Northern Ireland related news and weather updates, and talk-shows diversify the programme structure.
The station vivifies the mornings of Northern Ireland on weekdays, the "Breakfast with Gary & Glen" fills the air with the best melodies and playful chat from 6am to 10am. The radio continuously runs competitions giving chance to the listeners to win money by the Downtown Radio Cash Call and various prizes.
