Facts and stats
Rinse FM is a London-based community radio station which originally broadcast to inner London, but has since has it's transmission area changed to an area to the east of the City of London after the transmitter was moved from Bermondsey to a tower block in the Finsbury area of the capital.
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 2011.
