About Kane FM
Kane FM started life as a pirate radio station in the early 90’s. The opportunity arose in 2004 to prove the demand for our service through an RSL (Restricted Service License). It lasted 28 days, was listened to in over 30 different countries, had approximately 77,000 FM listeners and represented the best in independent music culture, featuring Ram Records (Drum and Bass), True Tiger (UKG, Dubstep, Grime), Grant Nelson (House), and Low Life Records (Hip Hop), and hundreds of other labels, producers and DJs within the UK circuit. It has now grown into a not-for-profit community radio station to benefit the youth of tomorrow. All profits generated are used to drive social gain and community cohesion. On 24th February 2010 OFCOM awarded Kane FM with our Community Radio Licence, making Kane FM one of the few pirate radios’ ever to make the transition to legal radio. Keep your ears locked on 103.7FM (our frequency). We commence test broadcasting soon…
