Hear The Playlist That Ignites Your Military Memories – As BFBS Turns 75

Listen to the 75 songs that best ignite your military memories - as voted for by you

Music can stir powerful emotions or transport us to a special place in time – and BFBS has been with you all the way to make those memories.

Songs are especially evocative for the military community – a soundtrack to their service.

To celebrate 75 years of BFBS bringing the best music and entertainment to those who serve and their families, we are creating our very own Forces playlist - BFBS 75.

Over the past few weeks you have been nominating and voting for the songs that best represent military life.

Now you can listen to the top 75 on bank holiday Monday from 10am UKT.

BFBS Radios Evolution

Since its first radio broadcast in 1944 from Algiers, BFBS has raised the morale, well-being and welfare of our armed forces and their families worldwide – and has continued to serve the Forces during operations overseas, including in the Falklands, Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq.    To celebrate 75 years of entertaining, informing, connecting and championing the UK Armed Forces, BFBS asked you to nominate the songs that best ignite your military memories and the moving stories behind them.

The list was then voted on by more than 1000 serving military, veterans and their families to create a Top 75.

Now you can listen to this list of 75 amazing and emotive songs and stories from 10am UKT this bank holiday Monday.
