University to hold urban radio discussion.

On Thursday 7th May a panel discussion will be taking place at Birmingham City University’s Parkside Lecture Theatre about the early days of urban music radio, new technologies, how to stay relevant in today’s society and what still motivates these early pioneers.

The panel will include:
Simon Schoolboy Philips (Choice Fm/Radio 1/Capital Radio)
Frenchie (PCRL/SCR/Fresh FM/Radio Sandwell)
Freakie Dee (Radio WM/Buzz FM)
Graeme Park (Kiss/Galaxy Key 103

Whether you were a part of the UK’s urban underground music scene in the 80s and 90s or a modern music radio fan this is not to be missed.

In addition, there will be an opportunity to purchase Masters of the Airwaves, a book about the early stages of urban UK music radio. It was compiled by original Kiss FM DJs/Broadcasters Lindsay Wesker and Dave VJ, and features a vast array of contributors including Jazzie B OBE, David Rodigan MBE, Trevor Nelson MBE and Norman Jay MBE,

“This book is like a musical memoir. It gives a glimpse of the players, innovators, taste-makers and most importantly black music radio fans, who, in the formative years of the industry were crucial to its existence today.” Trevor Nelson Radio 1/1Xtra
