A new online radio station for young people will be launching during a live broadcast from the ArcelorMittal Orbit.
The team from East London Radio will be at the top of the sculpture in Olympic Park on Friday 22 August, and is inviting listeners to join them.
ELR is a non for profit radio station, aiming to provide routes into radio for young people, recent graduates, the long term unemployed and those within up and coming areas in East London. The radio’s playlist ranges from soul to disco to hip hop, jungle, grime and even the odd classical track.
East London Radio was a recent media partner with the Leytonstone Arts Trail, an annual arts festival of visual arts in Leytonstone and in February they participated in the Hackney Wick takeover as part of the V&A Friday Late event on February 28th.
