Music for Dementia launches m4d Radio

19 June 2020

Music for Dementia is delighted to announce the launch of m4d Radio, bringing meaningful music direct to the homes of people living with dementia. This pioneering initiative is directly in line with the campaign’s aim of making music freely available to everyone living with dementia.


Listeners can tune in to the group of five stations via the internet and choose their birth year to listen to music that means something more, 24 hours a day.


The five stations are playing music from 30s - 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, plus a Mix station. The latter contains a mixture of all decades, ideal for larger groups in a care home setting.


Listen to m4d Radio now




What makes m4d Radio different?

  • Through careful focus group research and feedback the music has been curated to provide an instant source of appropriate music that follows the rhythm of the day.
  • The five stations cater for different age groups, meaning the music has more resonance to enrich listeners’ quality of life – all for free.
  • Included in the varied programme content are sessions on music to move to, music from musicals and featured artists. Through the night, soothing tracks are designed to while away wakeful hours with relaxing music.


How you can support m4d Radio


We are delighted that our ambassador, Lauren Laverne, will be kicking of the launch of the radio with a #Song4You social media video campaign.


She and other celebrities have pledged their support by dedicating a song to a person close to them who has been affected by dementia.


Please search for #Song4You and share the posts to spread the word. Alzheimer’s Research UK statistics show that 34.5 million people in the UK know someone with a diagnosis of dementia.
