Abstract

By the mid-1970s, the BBC and the Independent Local Radio (ILR) sector started catering to the local Asian migrant listener community in England, by producing Asian radio programming output in English and in Asian languages such as Hindi and Urdu. In the 1980s, the Greater London Council (GLC) came up with its own initiatives to cater to London’s Asian migrant community. This article unfolds GLC’s initiatives through its Community Radio Unit, which encouraged an independent British Asian radio broadcasting in England.
