Legendary radio voice Ken Bruce has announced his latest broadcast adventure since leaving BBC Radio 2 after 31 years.

The 72-year-old swapped his mid-morning show for the breakfast slot on Greatest Hits Radio in January 2023 where he brought his iconic PopMaster with him.

But listeners to the radio station run by Bauer Media are now in for another treat, as they can expect to hear even more of the DJ as he dedicates an entire station to a special era of music.

Ken will now be hosting a new Greatest Hits Radio station which will showcase only 1960s music, making the move a first of its kind.

On Thursday (August 3), Greatest Hits Radio announced the launch of a new digital station – Ken Bruce’s Secret 60s.

What is Ken Bruce’s new 60s radio station about and how do I listen?

From The Beatles to the Rolling Stones, the station will play the “most iconic songs and legendary singers” of the decade and launches on Friday (August 4).

However, it will only be available to Greatest Hits Radio Premium subscribers, Bauer said.

Ken said: “Don’t tell the bosses but I’ve been sneaking the odd Sixties record into my show for a while now, so the fact that I’ve got a whole station to now play with is very exciting.

“You can expect the greatest hits, obviously, but also some buried treasure you haven’t heard in a while. I’m sure many people will agree it’s the soundtrack of our youth.”

The Scottish broadcaster added: “I can’t wait for you to hear it, just don’t tell anyone – it’s a secret remember!”

The new 60s station was named by Greatest Hits Radio listener Chris Benson, who will appear on Ken’s regular Golden Years feature on Friday and share three songs from a particular year that mean a lot to him.

The 41-year-old, from Bradford, said: “I love the great mix of music from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s on Greatest Hits Radio but to have this secret corner with classic Sixties music is brilliant.

“It feels as if we’re not meant to like Sixties music anymore so in my head this new station is like this little underground club.

“Greatest Hits Radio taking on board my suggestion of Secret 60s as a name shows the brilliant interaction that the station has with its listeners – and being invited on the station to talk to Ken was a lovely surprise!”
