Spotted on Mad News UK, where you can read more on the story:

Founder and CEO of BANG Radio, Jennifer Ogole, officially launches Riddim Radio on 103.6 FM across London, and online via www.weareriddim.com, becoming the first legal reggae and dancehall music station in the capital.

April marks what would have been BANG Radio’s 5th birthday, yet with the saturation of urban music in the British market, the team behind the community station brand have been working on bringing Caribbean sister station Riddim Radio to the UK.

Jennifer Ogole 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.”

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.
