Radio Caroline is the name of two groups.
1. Radio Caroline was a Japanese rock band consisting of three members, formed in 2003. Their musical style was loud, upbeat and reminiscent of the members’ previous bands. Most of their lyrics were written by guitarist/vocalist PATCH, but ever since the release of their second full-length album ALL-OUT, drummer Kusube Shinya also wrote and provided vocals for some of their songs.
The band was signed to Columbia Music Entertainment during all their years of activities, their last release being the compilation album PORTRAIT ～THE BEST OF Radio Caroline～. In March 2009, the band announced their intention to cease all activities after finishing their DESPERATE 7 ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTS tour the following summer. During their six years as a band, Radio Caroline released four full studio albums, two EPs and three singles.
