Rock Radio is a brand of radio stations in the United Kingdom owned by GMG Radio.
A digital station named Rock Radio was launched on DAB on 1 April 2008 in the North East of England, and extended to Yorkshire and the Severn Estuary from 2010. It was initially a presenter-led station, then switched to automated rock service similar to The Arrow, but has now changed again, to simulcast programmes from the Manchester station.
106.1 Rock Radio launched in Manchester in May 2008. The station is a new city licence awarded to GMG under the name Rock Talk, which originally proposed to broadcast talk programming in peak hours and rock music in the off-peak. The station is currently available on FM in Manchester but is not currently on DAB in its target area.
Since September 2009, automated evening content on 96.3 Rock Radio has been replaced by presented programmes from 106.1 Rock Radio.
In September 2011 106.1 Rock Radio was renamed 106.1 Real Radio XS
