Who owns and runs Boom?


Who owns and runs Boom?

We're a group of old friends with a dream who launched Boom in Feb '21. 

We're semi-retired radio folk who've had enjoyable careers, backed by a few individuals who believed in the idea of creating a station for our generation at a time when the BBC appeared to be serving us less well.

We wanted to play the music we grew up with, flavoured with a few more recent tracks - hosted by presenters our age.

We also wanted to dig a little deeper into artists' repertoire than other stations and play some tracks you may not have heard for ages, alongside the familiar hits.

We're independent - and not part of any major media organisation.

Boom has no premises - the presenters broadcast from their own homes.

Here's a little more about how we are licensed - and how our company is funded.


How to listen

You can hear us on DAB across the UK.

And you can hear us online in high quality on your phone, laptop, PC or tablet. 

On your smart speaker, it's 'Alexa - Play Boom Radio' or 'Hey Google - Talk to Boom Radio'.
