Remel London at The 2016 Arqiva Commercial radio awards!

June 24, 2016 | by Remel London

Back in May I was invited to the Arqiva Commercial radio awards. I also had the pleasure of presenting an award!

Yep a bit of a big deal for me considering I’m not on commercial radio and don’t consider myself commercial at all. My initial thoughts were – Why me… then it was HELL YEAH they asked ME 💃🏾

It was such an amazing experience considering my journey through radio that I’m still chugging along on.

A little history for those that don’t know…

Dating back to 2008 I started my journey on student radio with a temp show called Funky Munky on LSRFM at the University of Leeds – played funky house because i sincerely lived and breathed it!

Then through pure hustle and bustle I secured a show on Pirate radio in Leeds on Fresh FM. I was and still do rep pirate radio with pride lol ✊🏾

Upon my return to London I learnt the ropes, which I would advise everyone to do at community radio – shout out BANG Radio and westside radio for the serious air miles!

I then forced my foot into Choice FM, under the global umbrella, and got my first taste of commerical radio, by Go’d grace, I honestly don’t know how I moved across to Capital FM – the real commercial world!

2 years of 6am coffee runs was well.. an experience.

I now am on my journey as a COVER GIRL at BBC Radio 1Xtra and so I was extremely excited to see this cover girl featured in the Mail Online!
