Colourful Radio launched on DAB in London last week. The station offers a mix of soul, jazz, reggae, and R&B from the 1960s to present, coupled with debates on various issues.
“DAB gives radio operators a chance to build independent stations that are not bogged down by big company mentality and bureaucracy. Colourful Radio offers the perfect combination between an uplifting ‘feel good’ station and a forum for debating issues that are close to people’s hearts. It will no doubt make a fantastic contribution to the capital, its citizens and visitors,” said Gordon McNamee, managing director.
McNamee is joined by Henry Bonsu. They will present shows alongside a team of some well-known radio and club DJs, including Aitch B from Soul II Soul, Femi Femm from Young Disciples, Mastermind, Mistri, Dave VJ, DJ Elayne, Lindsay Wesker, Mickey D, Rosemary Laryea, Chris Phillips, Dave P and Stretch Taylor.
