Sunset Radio returns to Manchester on DAB

A radio station last heard in 1993 in Manchester is returning on DAB in the city.

The New Sunset Radio launches on Monday, with former Sunset 102 presenter Mike Shaft in charge. He says: “This will be a great day for the people of Manchester who like the type of music we play, and for those who remember the old Sunset Radio back in the day.

“It’s been a long time coming but Manchester will once again have a BME (Black and Minority Ethnic) music station that we can all be proud of”.

Sunset ceased broadcasting in 1993, after the Radio Authority terminated its licence accusing the station of providing inaccurate information about its financial and management affairs. The licence was later readvertised won by Faze FM, which started broadcasting as Kiss FM under brand licence from Emap. The station then went on to become Galaxy then Capital.

Sunset is part of the line-up on the trail Manchester minimux which launched recently, running for a total duration of nine months.
