Cruise FM was first established as an FM radio station in London, England in 1984 by founder The Bushbaby. They could be heard on 104.5 in stereo as North London’s Weekend Soul Station and with the youngest DJ lineup ever known.

The station broadcast for a number of years with a crew back then of up to 25 DJ’s. They ran into the small hours with a good following across North London and the counties of Hertfordshire and Essex – fun was the focus and boy did they have it.

Being a pirate radio organisation back then, the inevitable station bust came one Sunday early evening, clearing out a whole live studio. Despite desperate attempts to keep the flame alive they never really recovered from this severe loss of equipment, music and DJ confidence.

The station has since returned on line, still specialising in publicising young blood and getting good decent Black originated Music out amongst the masses. To be honest nothing has changed in this reworking of the station, although they now have presenters from Miami to Thailand!
