Facts and stats

Rinse FM is a London-based community radio station, licensed for "young people living and/or working within the central, east and south London areas."

The station plays grime, dubstep, house, jungle and funky and other UK-centric underground dance music.

Shows for older listeners include an old school Hardcore/Jungle show presented by Uncle Dugs on Friday mornings showcasing underground dance music from 1988 to 1998 and classic soul by Horse Disco Music on Sunday afternoons.

As part of its community broadcasting remit, Rinse FM is engaged in training young people in broadcasting skills who are considered marginalised, including working with children who are in Pupil Referral Units. These are units for persistent truants and people with special educational needs.

Formerly a pirate radio station which launched in 1994, Rinse re-launched as a community radio station in 2010 and is participating in the small scale DAB Digital Radio trial for London as of 29th October 2015.
