Voted “Best Radio Station” at Urban Music Awards (2015) and nominated UMA 2016 ‘Best Radio Station (2016)’, Colourful Radio is a unique independent family-friendly, public-spirited, 24/7 music and conversation multi-platform radio station paid for by adverts.
The name ‘colourful’ simply means ‘distinctive in character’. In his momentous ‘I have a Dream’ address on 28 August 1963, Rev. Martin Luther King Jnr. talked about judging a person by the ‘content of their character’. Call it creative licence, we have made it our mission to be consistently distinctive in the content of our programmes, our talent roster, and our listener-base. The name is also characteristic of our main broadcast footprint – London, which is by definition ‘colourful’ with over 300 languages spoken in it and more than 50 non-indigenous communities.
