By the late 1980s, the music on London’s Dance pirates was changing and, setting the template of what was to come, East London’s Sunrise FM launched in April 1988.

They could be heard firstly at weekends on 88.75 FM, playing the usual diet of soul, funk, rare groove and a little reggae. Later, weekday evenings were added, eventually expanding to a full 7 days operation, by which time more House music was being heard.

As the 90s progressed the station started to feel the pinch, and the usual combination of raids and people leaving, caused broadcasts to be reduced to weekends before stopping altogether in the mid 1990s.

The station was since returned as an on line station, which can be found on the links below, along with their Facebook page.
