Lovebirds Vintage

Lovebirds Vintage has been running since August of 2012 and was started as a way of learning more about vintage fashion and connecting with other vintage lovers. 

My personal style is inspired by the fashions of the 1940s and 50s with occasional forays into other decades, and I also enjoy many different aspects of historical fashion extending back much further into the past.  

As well as historical fashion, I enjoy cooking, knitting, photography, and studying insects. I can often be found at historical re-enactment events, vintage fairs and visiting local places of's this item about? What makes it interesting?

1940s UK Radio

We play music and historical news broadcasts from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, that would have been heard predominantly in England and the USA. We are proud to have been the first UK based internet radio station to provide this level of original archive broadcast material along with our own presented programmes. The main aim of the station is to promote music that most terrestrial stations no longer dedicate sufficient air-time to as they feel it is no longer popular or financially viable.  
The station, apart for myself, is staffed entirely by a commited team of international volunteers who have a passion to share their love and knowledge of the music, so that the music will hopefully continue to be introduced to both old and new listeners for years to come, thus securing the golden age of popular music and song.
