In the 60s, the underground soul scene thrived in the UK, but you could only listen to such content on BBC Radio One. In 1970, a group of soul fans decided to create a pirate station known as Radio Invicta. The station started by broadcasting for three hours each Sunday. Radio Invicta became popular as time passed, and the weekly mailbag increased. Tony John, one of the station's founders, led to the station's popularity and the explosion of the station in the 80s. However, the station stopped broadcasting in 1984, and Solar Radio came to life. Back then, Solar FM features DJs from London's pirate station Horizon and JFM. The Station has a 24-hour programme schedule, promoting soul and related music styles in Greater London. Thanks to the large audience, Solar FM became successful and has since then been broadcasting from the UK.
Solar FM is available to you on a range of online streaming platforms. You can therefore listen in on your iPhone and Android device. Similarly, it's available on smart speakers, DAB, and FM. Note that on DAB, it is available to listeners in Brighton, London, and Norwich.
