RTÉ Gold is an Irish radio station broadcasting on DAB, on Saorview, online and via Virgin Media TV sets.

Its DAB signal is carried by the RTÉ NL DAB multiplex on channel 12C - 227.360 MHz, covering 54% of the population. It is available in Cork and Limerick cities and in the greater Dublin area.

Background[edit]

The station plays music from top-selling artists spanning the decades from the 1950s to the 1990s. Unlike other classic hits stations RTÉ Gold digs deeper into artists' back catalogues and also plays top album tracks.

On weekdays, it plays the music clutter-free throughout the day with specialist programmes at 7pm each evening. There are RTÉ presenter led programmes over the weekend from 8am - midnight.
