Absolute 80s is also introducing a classic chart, to be broadcast at the same time, Sunday 4pm till 7pm hosted by Martyn Lee.
Group Programme Director for UTV Radio GB, Terry Underhill added: “A generation of us grew up listening to the legendary David ‘Kid’ Jensen on the chart show and this will be a weekly opportunity to re-live those great times.
