Radio2Funky is coming to FM

Radio2Funky is coming to FM

Radio2Funky, Leicester's leading urban music radio station, has been awarded a full-time Community Radio License, taking the internet based station to broadcasting on FM. 


Set up in 2012 by 2Funky Arts Director Vijay Mistry, the station is run by volunteers and local DJ’s and provides an ideal platform for artist development, as well as training for media based careers. Vijay says: “This is an amazing development for our station and will complement the work of 2Funky Arts massively through linking in with events, artists and volunteers.”


Leicester is a vibrantly diverse and youthful city, so Radio2Funky is a great fit as it is rooted in arts, culture and local city life. The station is a dynamic platform, serving mainly people aged 16-35  who have an interest in urban music and arts.


Radio2Funky is preparing to launch on FM in 2020, with a fresh new programme schedule reflecting a local audience, and will provide a range of opportunities for people living in Leicester to be part of the running of the station and its content. Over the past 5 years, we have been committed to promoting homegrown talent and the station will continue to support emerging Leicester artists, as well as enabling young people to acquire skills and find pathways into the radio and music industries. 


Check back soon for more updates and exciting new opportunities!
