BANG Radio goes for a reggae re-launch

BANG Radio, a community station in London, will change its name and format tomorrow to Riddim Radio, playing reggae and dancehall music.

Founder and CEO of BANG Radio, Jennifer Ogole, says the team behind the community station brand have been working on bringing Caribbean sister station Riddim Radio to the UK.

Jennifer confirms “We are proud to announce a change in what was BANG Radio’s licence. We have been granted permission by Ofcom to amend our remit and champion reggae and dancehall from our home in Harlesden, North West London, finally shining a light on and representing a worldwide culture which has been gradually disappearing from British radio and deserves to have its own media platform in the UK.”

The station will be broadcasting from London, Trinidad and Jamaica.

Jennifer Ogole and Zak Esau founded online radio station Riddim Radio in Trinidad in April 2013 and a year on, the expansion of broadcasting on FM in London will be taking place at midnight of 1st April 2014.
