Bauer radio presenter joins Absolute 80s

Matthew Rudd, presenter of Qthe80s on the now defunct Q radio station has been hired by Absolute 80s to host a similar show.

absoluteradio80sMatt will now host Forgotton 80s each weekend, highlighting ‘hidden gems’ from the decade starting this Sunday 26th May at 7pm.

His show on Q ended when the station ceased broadcasting earlier this month and replaced by Kisstory.

“I am really excited to be hosting my own radio show on Absolute 80s,” said Matthew Rudd. “I’m passionate about the music of this era and the cultural impact it continues to have – I can’t wait to get started.”

Absolute Radio’s Content Director Tony Moorey said, “Absolute 80s is having a fantastic year after recently being named the UK’s biggest digital commercial radio station. I’m sure that Matthew and his “Forgotten 80s” series will prove to be hugely popular with our discerning listeners who want to rediscover some of the hidden gems from the decade.”

Recent speculation on Twitter suggests Bauer Media has bought Absolute Radio but no official announcement has been made.
