Reprezent Radio Needs Your Help To Secure Its Future

Reprezent Radio Needs Your Help To Secure Its Future

February 14, 2024

If you're a fan of homegrown talent and UK music, chances are Reprezent Radio has had a hand in the success of some of your favourite artists, DJs and radio presenters. The Brixton-based community radio station has been on the airwaves since 2011, serving the UK scene by giving opportunities to up-and-comers and the wider community.

Reprezent now faces the biggest threat to its existence yet. They've fought funding cuts for some years and that battle is now almost proving too much for them to continue airing. So they're now enlisting the help of the public to keep their doors open. They've launched a crowdfunding project to raise £50,000—a sum that will effectively save the station—and they've made the video below to promote their cause.

Everyone from Maya Jama and Henrie Kwushue to Stormzy and Remi Burgz have passed through the doors of Reprezent at some point in their career, all benefitting from its mission. And while funds in both the arts and youth services/development have taken a huge hit over the last 10 years or more, we'll have to pool together to ensure the next generation of household names can have the same opportunity.
