Classic FM Classic FM is the United Kingdom's first national commercial radio station, broadcasting classical music in a popular and accessible style. At the heart of Classic FM's identity from the start was its playlist of popular classics. At launch it was compiled over the first few years by Robin Ray who over a period of time brought 50,000 items of music into the playlist, and personally awarded each a star rating assessing its popular appeal. These ratings proved remarkably accurate when subsequently tested by audience research.
