Colourful Radio has announced it’s to launch in London on Monday 2 March. The station, founded by seasoned broadcasters, Henry Bonsu and Gordon (Mac) McNamee will be on the DAB platform.
The station promises a mix of soul, jazz, reggae and R&B, both classic and contemporary, and informative debate on topical issues.
Mac said: “I think it is time for another broadcasting revolution. DAB gives radio operators a chance to build independent stations that are not bogged down by big company mentality and bureaucracy.”
Both Gordon and Henry will present shows alongside some of the most celebrated radio and club DJs, including Aitch B from Soul 2 Soul, Femi Fem (Young Disciples) and Lindsay Wesker.
Also included in the launch team is Mike Franklin, former MD of both LBC and TalkSport who is the station’s Director of Strategy.
