Radio Station Establishes Base At The Bottle Yard

News Image
The Bottle Yard Studios has welcomed the first radio station to set up base on its Bristol site – SoulTrain Radio DAB.

The station has moved into its new studio residence located in three former edit rooms at The Bottle Yard Studios, in preparation for its DAB launch in December.

SoulTrain Radio DAB came about as the result of 25 years of the legendary SoulTrain, one of Bristol's most famous and longest running club nights, founded by Paul Alexander in 1992. After internet broadcasting over the past two years, the station is now set to launch on DAB playing "classic Motown sounds, sexy soul ballads, 70s & 80s rare groove, quintessential jazz, mind blowing funk to modern day soul and RnB, broadcasting 24 hours a day, every day."

Paul Alexander, Founder and Chairman, said: "SoulTrain has been a labour of love for many years and finally we have reached a point where we can bring the joy of soul music to the masses. It's going to be fantastically soulful. SoulTrain Radio DAB is the only independent soul music station in Bristol and we are very proud of that. We are excited to be based somewhere that has such an outstanding reputation for providing production services and to be the first radio station being broadcast from The Bottle Yard is a privilege for us."

Fiona Francombe, Site Director of The Bottle Yard Studios, added: "It's a huge plus for us to add a radio tenant to the wide variety of media companies we have on site, and feels only right that it should be a station devoted to entertaining music fans living right here in Bristol. SoulTrain has been very much a part of Bristol's cultural identity, with an established and devoted following. We're extremely proud that it will be taking the exciting step forwards to onto the DAB airwaves, to delight listeners from their new base at The Bottle Yard."
