Fortune 1458 was a radio station based in Trafford Park, Manchester, England.[1]


The station began broadcasting in 1994 on the old BBC Radio Manchester medium wave frequency. It was seen as a direct competitor to Piccadilly 1152 as the station focussed on older listeners by broadcasting an easy listening format.

Following take overs, the station went through several name changes including Lite 1458, Big AM and Capital Gold. The frequency is currently used by Gold.[2][3][4][5]
