Love Absolute 80's but ...

They have now stopped broadcasting on south coast ☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️, something to do with France using the same frequency. Therefore I have to use the app. It's ok, but sometimes it stops for no apparent reason, and nearly every time an ad break comes on, omg there's a woman who keeps telling me I'm not listening through an app so have to listen to her ... frustrating when I AM listening through the app and I can't just hear music like they promise. The worst thing of all is that I cannot anymore get the station via my digital radios (which was my I bought them) or in the car ... an Absolute disappointment.

Love absolute 70s but

I really enjoy listening to absolute 70s but wish they would play some different tunes instead of the same ones over and over again.
The seventies had such a variety of music but I feel they are playing it safe with their playlist. It would also be great if they would have a chart on Sunday evening from the seventies like they do with the eighties. Oh please, please, please arrange this!

Love the station but app is frustrating

Every 5 or 10 minutes it stops and restarts a couple of minutes back in time - so you hear the same advert, announcement or part of song again. It also keeps telling me if I had an account and was signed in I'd get a bonus song, even though i am permanently signed in. Needs glitches sorting!
