The History of SoulTrain Radio...
SoulTrain... Where it all began...
Soultrain Radio has been broadcasting as an internet radio station since November 2015 from Studios in Central Bristol.
Having previously been involved in a diverse community based radio station where the promise of performance was for speech content as well as politics and various musical styles, the conceptual idea behind Soultrain Radio is to broadcast continuous Soul Music 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Soultrain Radio in essence exists for lovers of radio and Soul music.
We have over 20 presenters, and the team behind Soultrain Radio is the same team as the Award Winning local event, Soultrain voted one of the Top Soul Club Nights outside of London, now in its 25th Year.
We have a wealth of industry experience in both local and national radio broadcasting and presentation.
Our intention is to broadcast on DAB and to be Bristol’s only local independent DAB radio station delivering Soul Music 24/7.
Sam FM broadcasts continuous Rock Music, and in London there are already a number of successful Soul Music Radio Stations on DAB.
Other National Radio Stations with a presence in Bristol currently do not fulfil this role (Breeze – pop/rock, Heart – chart/pop, Kiss –urban/dance)
Our Strapline is Love Soul, Love Soultrain Radio.
We have over 3,700 Soultrain Radio Group friends, plus many more on other individual groups and page forums.
We have our own free downloadable APP
In August 2016, we gained 134,799 hits on our website, and are averaging 75,000 hits monthly (March 2016 - March 2017 source: Webhost Analytics)
The future is looking and sounding very good!
