For the past couple of months you may have heard whispers about a brand new radio show in Birmingham, billed as ‘The Alternative Sound Of Birmingham’, featuring all manner of music, chat, arts and more. The idea behind the station was to offer an alternative to those radio stations available and to promote all that is great about Birmingham.
So why have things been so quiet up until now? Well the Brum Radio team have been busy doing test broadcasts, recruiting high calibre presenters and producers, and building up one hell of a database of music from local artists. Now they are finally ready to shout about the station, Brum Radio is live and already drawing considerable audiences, from not just Birmingham, but across the globe.
The schedule, although still growing, is already populated with some fantastic shows such as Brum Hour, WorldBeatUK, The Soul Hole, UAB Collective, Danny’s Brum & Bass Show, The Chicks Dig Jerks Radio Show, Dine Birmingham, Jack Parker’s Skit Cast and many more. When there are no live shows the musical output is made up exclusively of music from local artists, both established and up and coming.
“Brum Radio is about being fiercely independent and different. We are here to produce quality radio programming that punches way above our weight.”
Richard Farmer (Station Manager)
The station has only just gone full steam ahead and we have already had local celebrities involved, Steve Craddock of Ocean Colour Scene appeared live on The Soul Hole a few weeks ago and launches a show with his wife Sally this Friday. Plus Fuzz Townsend of Car SOS, PWEI, The Beat and more, has confirmed he will be launching a radio show with us in March. With stars such as Nile Rogers tweeting their support you can see things are off to a flying start!
Brum Radio offers a fresh approach Radio with an established presenter lineup of a variety of DJs, Comedians, Raconteurs, Promoters, Local Voices and Musicians. Our independent status allows the freedom to schedule unique Radio programming that’s made for Birmingham and offer a unique viable alternative to the mainstream.

We celebrate our launch with a line up in some of the best in Brum talent both cutting edge and local legends.
