Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones fame has come to the rescue of Angel Radio Isle of Wight with a very generous donation.

This is the second time the rock and roll legend has helped the station, which is today (Wednesday) thanking Mr Richards on behalf of all of their listeners and presenters.

Angel Radio Isle of Wight plays a wide range of nostalgic music from 1900 – 1969 which includes the Stones earlier recordings alongside records from Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald and also the Beatles, so the Rolling Stones are in fine company. Angel Radio is keeping legends alive.

Chris Gutteridge, Station owner and manager has said:

“Without the help of our generous listeners and benefactors like Keith we would not exist.

“We can only assume that he is a listener to our nostalgic music station. He is a very good friend of Angel Radio.

“How many radio stations can boast that they have been helped out by a Rolling Stone? It makes us wonder who is out there listening to us!”

Bev Webster, Programme Controller at Angel Radio adds:
