Live had some good djs on there and im sure its the same as the rds is livefmuk as before, is a shame that the new raw isnt reaching east london as not much on at the mo dnb/jungle wise - kool not on. Tfl not reaching etc. as much as i love me ukg thats catered for so i think they would get a following from these endz

Livefmuk has been like this for ages on 91.8 after 1015 also only playing cds for the last 4 years or so I can only remember hearing the brothers grim as the only show about 3 or 4 years ago

I thought Origin & Rude would easily cover East sides wouldn't they? - I don't know if these have been on recently or not as I live outside London.

I used to get origin at one point but no longer so and rude is always on silent carrier when i lock in, and besides 88.4 is strong so cuts out 88.2 in places. Will say tho a big up to vision , playback and devine seem to be playing more jungle / dnb recently πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

About time! Hearing constant House, Garage, Dancehall & Slow Jams style RnB on the dial everytime I come into London does get pretty stale after a while! It's a shame this new Raw 2.0 doesn't cover London as the dial in the capital is screaming for some variety.

I'd imagine a station like Kool aren't too bothered about FM so much as they have such a massive following online that it probably doesn't make a dent in their listenership when they are off. As for Origin, they did have a whopper of a signal a while back which seems to have shrunk over time & Rude have been very inconsistant/non-existent over the years. It's a shame coz they're all really good listens at times & as I've said, London's dial NEEDS the variety right now - The majority of output these days is just plain boring at times! It's a plus that some of the other established stations seem to be stepping up to fly the flag a bit more for DnB/Jungle on the dial.

Another established station like Cyndicut hanging up their coax recently reinforces my points, that was a great listen at times too.

First time I've have come to central London for a while and I am suprised that livefmuk got almost to Heathrow on my way back until the new raw from the west cut in
