BlackLight Radio is an internet-only, 24/7 radio station streaming in stereo at 128 kbps mp3 live from Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA.

Our music format consists of the biggest pop hits of the 1980s. We started with the top 100 pop singles for each year from 1980 to 1989 according to Billboard Magazine, giving us a music library of over 1,000 songs & guaranteeing no repeats in any 36 hour period.

We now have a Music Advisory Board of about a dozen BlackLight Radio Superfans who, each week, vote on songs from the 80s to add to rotation and songs to remove.

BlackLight Radio features “all of the 80s, all of the time.” We don’t skip any of the biggest hits from any year, & we do not step outside of the decade. This gives us unduplicated musical variety, from country to metal & from rap to ballads.

Specialty programming on BlackLight Radio adds to the depth of the station. Sunday is the main day for syndicated & specialty shows including the BlackLight Radio exclusive, The Kum Bah Yah Party (80s CCM) with Anonymous John.

BlackLight Radio has a couple of goals: first, to provide a home for those who grew up in the 80s & miss hearing the music we used to see on MTV & the 45s & cassingles we bought, and second to expose “new” fans of 80s music to the depth & breadth of styles the decade truly offers.

Future goals include adding announcers to the station, and putting together exciting giveaways for our listeners.

SPECIAL THANKS to Roy Bunales (voiceover artist) and Gary Thompson (producer) for our killer IDs!

A special thank you also to Aaron Kannowski of Uptown Sound for providing us so many high quality, difficult-to-find (and impossible-to-find!) radio promo edits and promo remixes of charting 80s hits, and to DjPaulT of Burning The Ground for providing us so many of the PartyMixes we play. Both of these guys are absolute pros in locating rare vinyl and cleaning it up to the point it sounds as good (or better) than the CD releases… IF they exist. We wouldn’t sound half as good as we do without you both!!
