One of the bigger Birmingham stations of the early 1990s was Power FM.

They were first heard in late 1990 and were essentially another Black station. They broadcast the usual diet of reggae/soul/dance but in the early days even had an indie show on Monday evenings.

They had a good signal across the Midlands and, for a time in the summer of 1992, even introduced a second channel on 106.2 to increase their total coverage area.

DJs such as Little Richie started out on there and other DJs included Funky Bunny, Mikey D and Dilenger.

They were still going in the summer of 1995, but by the summer of 1996 they had disappeared. There were rumours of a return and, though it never happened, it is thought some of the Power management went on to be involved in other stations.
