Starpoint Radio was founded over twenty years ago in 1985 as an alternative music station for London and the Home Counties, and is now live on UK Radio Portal.
Originally broadcasting once a week on Sundays, demand prompted broadcasts across thw whole weekend, and Starpoint Radio soon earned the reputation of being a quality radio station with presenters whose musical knowledge and presentation skills were second to none.
Over the following years Starpoint Radio attempted to broadcast seven days a week, but as an unlicensed station this proved difficult within the rules and regulations of the DTI. In December 1988 it was decided to pursue alternative avenues of broadcasting and Starpoint’s final show as an unlicensed station was from infamous Crazy Larry’s on the Kings Road in Chelsea.
In 1991, Starpoint Radio applied for and received one of the first restricted broadcast licences for a period of twenty-one days and the first show came from the unlikely venue of Windsor Safari Park, covering Windsor, Slough, Maidenhead, and most of Surrey and South London. In February 2005, management decided to part ways and Starpoint Radio was reborn.
Starpoint Radio is now available on UK Radio Portal, across the ITV Granada region.
