Each year, many Muslim communities across the UK are awarded a short term Radio licence by Ofcom, the UK’s communications regulator. The “Ramadan Economy” in the UK, is estimated to be worth over £200 million. Many communities apply for the licence so that they may broadcast during Ramadan, a month in which holds special spiritual value for Muslims around the World.

With many successful years of broadcast, the experienced management team continues to offer an exceptional Radio output. Working closely with volunteers, to create engaging and innovative programming.

Broadcasting twenty-four hours a day with the latest music, as well as news and stories from across the city. Managed by registered charity, Takeover Radio Children’s Media Trust, the station is run entirely by volunteers.
