Resonance 104.4fm Wins Radio Academy Award
I have just been informed that Resonance 104.4fm, home from home to the ‘Hollingsville’ and ‘Welcome to Mars’ radio series, won the Radio Academy’s Nations & Regions Award for London last night – and for the second year running. The judges said: ‘We agree that the winner should be Resonance FM. The judges felt this was the type of radio to be admired and applauded. Experimental and unique with a clear focus and raison d’être. Anyone who thinks UK radio has become bland and homogenised should listen to Resonance FM. It revels in its eclecticism, champions creativity, experiments with sound, dares to take risks, celebrates London’s vast cultural diversity and brings true meaning to the word “variety,” because you genuinely have no idea what’s coming next. It offers a service not available anywhere else and London would be a poorer place without it.’
My congratulations to everyone involved.
