In today's Advertising Association/WARC report for 2014, radio quietly blazed a trail as the best performing traditional media, up 7.2%, notes the RAB's Lucy Barrett. "It is great news that in 2014 UK advertising spend grew at its highest rate since 2010. It is also without doubt good news for many in the advertising industry that most of the traditional mediums saw impressive growth.
Radio has once again proven its resilience with exceptional growth of 7.2% in 2014 – the best performance for the medium since (the almost pre-internet era of) 2003."

Virgin Radio is to return to the UK airwaves, along with three spin-off talkSPORT stations and a host of new nationwide broadcasters as part of a new wave of digital radio stations.

It all started ten years before launch, in 1980, with a letter to the (then) IBA from Jazz FM co-founder, jazz pianist Dave Lee:

Dave had been inspired by listening to jazz radio stations in America while staying in Beverly Hills, making advertising jingles for television.
