Gordon Mac has quit his position as MD of Colourful Radio to set up a new soul and dance community.
The founder of Kiss FM and former managing director says Mi-Soul will provide access to everything related to Soul music on every broadcast platform, scheduled to go live by the end of this year.
Gordon, who set up Kiss FM as a pirate in the 80s and ran the station for 13 years, told RadioToday.co.uk: “I have not been so excited about the opportunity to create a multi platform Soul brand dedicated to Soul and Dance fans everywhere, since the deregulation of broadcast media in the late 1980s which gave birth to Kiss FM”.
Since leaving Kiss in 1998, Gordon has maintained his passion for music and, while running his successful Bar and Restaurant he kept his ‘toe in the water’ with a weekly show on Choice before taking the reins at Colourful Radio as Station Manager to help establish the brand over the last three years.
Now, following two years of research, Gordon, working with his business partner Martin Strivens (ex Commercial Director of Kiss FM), and a team that includes Deanna Hallett, Sháá Wasmund, Roy Marsh, Chris Phillips and Jon Mansfield, is developing Mi-Soul which will provide ‘Everything Soul Everywhere’.
We’ll bring you more details as the project gets closer to launch.
