Choice FM

Categories: TV & Radio

Started broadcasting from studios in Trinity Gardens (where the plaque is) in 1990. Co-founded by Patrick Berry and  Neil Kenlock, Choice was Britain’s first 24-hour black music radio station with a licence, covering South London. 

In 2004, the station was bought by the Capital Radio, now Global Media, and on 7 October 2013 it was rebranded – without warning – to Capital Xtra.

Vice, the source of our image, wrote; "Choice FM became the first British station to play a diet of reggae, soul and hip-hop every day."
