An Audience With Fiona Harrison

Fiona Harrison joins the 1940s Radio team bringing a ladies touch to the schedule.

Fiona Harrison is a soprano and costume artist with an intuitive understanding for all things 40s. Highly respected on the 1940s scene for her vocal versatility and authenticity, Fiona regularly performs songs from this era in authentic uniforms and glamorous costumes of the period. Widely acknowledged as “Britain’s finest Professional 1940s Entertainer” Fiona has gained a reputation for her outstanding showmanship and gorgeous glamour. 

Her trademarks are her superb musical arrangements and close harmony work. This she does by recording the two harmony parts onto her backing track and then singing the melody line live in performance making her act unique and unlike any other.
With 11 fabulous forties shows to choose from Fiona has become the artist of choice headlining at many events in the UK and Northern Europe.

1940s Radio Station Vintage Broadcasts New ImrovedNew Improved 1940sRadio.Com

After months of struggling with a poor quality Internet connection we are now pleased to announce our new improved bandwidth. After successful broadcast trials at Bunker 2, the Internet connection proved out to be stable and significantly faster.

Bunker 2 Is Now Partially Operational

Bunker 2 was switched to the live stream in the last few days of January with only a few minor teething troubles to date. Secondary support currently comes from Bunker 1 and we have the ability to instantaneously switch the stream source if a system failure occurred.

Tune into 1940s Radio BroadcastsComing your way on 1940s Radio

1940s Radio was formed by a group of enthusiasts who enjoyed the music and began an online stream so they could listen to great tunes and share a mutual hobby in the process. As many of you know things have become somewhat busier and we have had a lot of learning to do maintaining a service that people now regularly listen to and depend on.

More Spit and Polish

Although not yet apparent we have been cleaning up our act behind the scenes and some of you may have noticed little changes like regular time checks. The general auditing of the music archives is also an on-going process but this now allows us to stream track data showing title and artist (With the odd mistake perhaps).

The age of the Internet makes a mockery of time zones and we know by your emails 1940s Radio has circumvented the globe. You can imagine scheduling becomes an issue so we are extending the olive branch.

Online Music Set Request

From a single track to a complete set, you can now listen to what you like when you like, more or less. We have put together a simple form where you can submit a single track or a complete set list. A set list would need to cover 5, 10 or 20 songs along with the artists name and track title. This gives us 15, 30 and hour long slots which we can patch together for continuity.
