Listeners can tune in to a group of five stations via the internet 24 hours a day and choose their birth year to find music that has meaning for them.
Four of the stations play music from the 30s-40s, 50s, 60s and 70s while the fifth is a Mix station containing music from all decades, making it ideal for larger groups in care home settings.
The programme content includes:
- music to move to
- music from musicals
- featured artists
- soothing tracks for night-time listening
Music for Dementia ambassador, Lauren Laverne, will kick off the launch of m4d Radio with a #Song4You social media video campaign.
She and other celebrities have pledged their support by dedicating a song to a person close to them who has been affected by dementia.
