Launch[edit]

Peter Gordon launched 96.4 The Eagle at 7:45am on 4 January 1996, with the words "Hey, I've landed", an allusion to "the Eagle has Landed", the call sign Neil Armstrong used for the landing of the 1969 lunar landing craft. The first song played was "Uptown Girl" by Billy Joel.

History[edit]

The station changed its name from 96.4 The Eagle to 96.4 Eagle Radio in February 2007 and has more recently been changed to solely Eagle Radio. It launched on DAB Digital Radio on 12 December 2013.

The Vodafone Big Top 40 is produced by Global Radio at its Capital studios in London for broadcast on 140 commercial radio stations in the UK.
