Magnum 100 FM first broadcast as SLR, Sophisticated Local Radio, and was linked to the SLR Radio in London. They started in 1990 as SLR for maybe a few days but turned into ‘Magnum Force’ quite quickly.
It was originally run by Wile-up and Iroy, but Wile-up seemed to continue alone after a short time. The station had a tended to operate unreliably with days, weeks and even whole months skipped by the station before, alongside S.P.E.C., they went off the air in December 1991 to seek legality.
When they first started, their signal was huge and the jingles proclaimed “The biggest and the best in the south west!” However, this did not last. They changed frequency to 100.4 early on, probably to avoid clashing with Radio 1 on 99.5.
After their year off in 1992, they returned in early 1993 on 104 FM. This meant that the signal was not as good on the outskirts of Bristol as it could have been.
The station was gone again by April 1993, but Wile-up returned the following year with Ragga FM.
