talked about judging a person by the ‘content of their character’. Well, call it creative licence, but we have made it our mission to be consistently distinctive

It’s all about U/us…Our Music….Our Voice….Our Genesis Radio Birmingham – The People’s Choice….A fi we station!!!
The analogue era of broadcasting as a pirate radio station was never an attractive proposition for us. Instead, we start in 2014 as an internet radio stream – and a pioneering one at that – at a time when the technology iss in its infancy.
After a live presenter-led pilot broadcast during 2012/13, we can now go on to become, the first internet audio stream from Birmingham UK to successfully transition to become a fully-fledged community/commercial radio station broadcasting online and, eventually, on TV.
You could say our DNA is, completely and without qualification, digital – And that is unique in the broadcast radio industry!
Is this the moment independent digital community/commercial radio comes of age?
