REGENCY RADIO is the 1st Advert free Nonstop music station in the UK and has already achieved amazing audience figures in a short period of time, outperforming its more established competitors in Brighton & Hove with 59,000 listeners in the 16 to 60 age group from its potential audience of 300,000 listeners on DAB..

Lynsey Bartlett said “My obsession with radio started early; as a kid I would squirrel myself away with my top-loading cassette recorder and make pretend shows for hours on end. But dreams can come true, and I have been lucky enough to work in this crazy industry most of my adult life. I have lived in Brighton and Hove for more than two decades and to be on air in this amazing city is a real privilege. To call this awesome place so full of diverse, vibrant people my home is wonderful.
