The Capital Radio brand has also spread to seven separate international countries as independent radio stations and is both widely and instantly recognised as one of radios most respected brand names.

Capital Radio has a strong reputation for producing a blend of high-quality programmes, along with entertaining DJ’s and fantastic music, both tailored specifically for a key age demographic, in the relevant county or city where it broadcasts from, in the UAE this is the over 35+ female and males.

In the UAE Capital Radio will add a different entertaining option to the current UAE English stations, were playing music not heard on any other station. Welcome to the station of the Nation…. This is Capital Radio UAE.

Our Target Audience

Although our music is aimed at the over +35 age demographic of any nationality, we welcome both you, or any listeners to this exciting new sound, we have no boundaries, ‘’our house is your house’’. 

So what’s different about Capital Radio then…. That’s easy, we entertain you, it’s not just music or the DJ / presenter limited to saying: ‘’that was – this is’ and here’s a time check’… nope, we don’t and will never operate a boring, robotic meaningless presentation format, that many of our existing competitors do. Our message is clear, we are a fun radio station, packed with a strong combination of brilliant music and entertainment.

Capital Radio will offer far more, complete and constant entertainment and engagement from our experienced DJ ’s, or as I like to call them, our entertainers, will talk to you, not at you, make you smile, laugh and brighten up a good, or a dull day and if your feeling down, then we will be your best friend.

Our Music

Ou music is like our presenters, unique to the UAE, mainly because no existing UAE radio station is playing the top chart hits of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s…but we will….. At last you will now be able to hear the best selling artists of all time, yes I know hard to believe, but we will play: The Beatles, Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Andy Williams, The Hollies, Led Zeppelin, Status Quo, Cliff Richard, Abba, The Monkey’s, Pink Floyd, The Bay City Rollers, Wings, The Faces, Dr Hook, Eagles etc, etc and this is the best one….Black Lace and The Tweets… Only joking on the last two… well, sort off !!

We will also play some of the current chart hits from the artists of these three musical decades, who record new material and of course the popular music of Michael Bubble, Adel, Sam Smith, Clean Bandit etc.

Capital Radio will most definitely will not be limited to just 400 tracks on endless rotation, nope…. our presenters will pick most of the tracks they play, there’s 15,000 to chose from and if we don’t have it, we will obtain a track and quickly, along with your help as part of our many request shows, why wouldn’t you, or our DJ’s pick the music, after all, both you and our experienced DJ’s are far more qualified than any mindless music scheduling computer….Doh!!
