The Best in Easy Listening

In our fast-paced modern world it's important to have an escape. Serenade Radio is just that.

Sometimes, it's an escape into the past with a wealth of great songs written at a time when quality was paramount. At other times, we long for the gentler, more carefree world of our childhood. Often, all it takes is a good song well sung, to refresh the soul.


This on-line radio station was born out of a real appetite to hear those great songs from that golden era of song writing. Not just the occasional treat, buried in a sea of pop mediocrity, but all day every day.

From Frank Sinatra to The Carpenters; Bing Crosby to Bread; Ella Fitzgerald to Michael Buble. You get the idea.
