New Access radio stations appear on the dial.

A new children's radio station has launched in Leicester as part of the Access Radio scheme. In Nottingham, a station aimed at the South Asian community has also taken to the air. The stations are non-profit making, as part of an idea to bring creative, original and innovative community stations to the air.

Takeover Radio, an experimental service for kids and teenagers, with contributors aged between 8 and 14 years, can be heard across Leicester on 103.2FM - the frequency originally used by Leicester Sound.


                            Takeover Radio is operated by registered charity Takeover Radio Children's Media Trust. They can be contacted on 0116 299 9600, or via their website below.

Radio Fiza is a mixture of two services from the Asian Women's Project Limited and the Karimia Institute. The station is broadcasting throughout Nottingham on 97.1FM.

The Asian Women's Project is on-air from Monday to Wednesday between 1 and 9pm and on Sunday from 12 midday to 9pm. The service includes 'local and community news and information, features, interviews, discussions, phone-ins, poetry and literature, and Asian and English music. Asian languages include Urdu and Punjabi with some Hindi, Bengali, Mirpuri and Gujarati.'

The Karimia fills in during other daylight and evening hours with more speech shows and 'news and current affairs focussing on issues of local concern and interest. Included are interviews, discussions, phone-ins and features. Music styles featured include Qawalis and Naats, and Ghazals. Languages include Urdu, Punjabi, Mirpuri, Arabic languages', with 60% of shows in English.
