Back with a new batch! Here we go! Thanks to those who have bought merch or donated, we are now broadcasting to more than 23 countries with more being explored. Let us know if you can't hear us and we will see what we can do!

Once again we reach out to your generosity to help us with our licensing fees to keep us on air for another year.


Please consider buying / downloading music from the bands we play. It is free to listen, but not free for me to broadcast. If you are able to spot me a tanner then that will go towards affording licences to broadcast further afield and buy even more music. Please do not feel obliged to - the point of this station is to champion the ska and Northern Soul scene. But if you can... KTF


We are proud to support the Specialized project. The Specialized Project supports The Teenage Cancer Trust, National Foundation for Youth Music and Tonic Music for Mental Health.
