Inner city radio
Radio2Funky was set up by 2Funky Arts in 2012 and launched as an FM station (license awarded by Ofcom) in July 2020. The station promotes music and arts of Black origin, while maintaining an inclusive ethos.
Radio2Funky is run by volunteers and local DJ’s, and provides an ideal platform for artist development, as well as training for media-based careers.
LEICESTER IS A MULTI-CULTURAL & YOUTHFUL LOCATION, SO RADIO2FUNKY IS A GREAT FIT AND IS ROOTED IN ARTS, CULTURE & LOCAL CITY LIFE.
Radio2Funky is a dynamic platform that caters for the musical tastes of Leicester’s diverse communities, particularly those of Black and minority ethnic origin aged 16-30. The station covers a 5km radius – predominantly inner city.
Radio2Funky already has a core team of 40 DJ’s, and receives new music through these turntablists, as well as via local record labels and artists. The station champions home-grown talent and highlights local artists through integrating their music into station playlists, as well as having dedicated shows for emerging talent.
