The Funkademia Radio Show

The Selector once penned a song about having “the same old show on my radio” and 35 years later these lyrics seem incredibly apt. In recent years we have been disappointed in the way commercial radio stations in Manchester have become less relevant to our city, more profit driven and London based which has diluted the product to the point where its becoming annoying to listen to and irrelevant to Mancunians. Which is why we’re very excited that Funkademia has been invited by the good people at Unity FM Radio to present a weekly Funkademia Radio Show. Unity Fm is an independent, Mancunian radio station dedicated to airing the music it believes in.

The Funkademia Radio Show goes out live on air from Unity’s station in Ancoats every Sunday from 4pm – 7pm. Anchored by our resident DJ’s Fritz Great lakes, Trafford Lovething, Payney & guests the show will feature the best in soul, funk, original disco, rap, hip hop, R&B – anything with a soulful groove really. Unity FM can be heard on FM frequency 92.8 within the M60 ringroad and anywhere in the world via the internet on

We’d like you to get involved so contact us via email, Facebook or Twitter with any requests or shout outs & we’ll do our best to oblige.
