Whilst many of the big pirate stations were 7 dayers, there were many others that only operated at weekends. One of these was Sweet 101 FM.

It was set up by DJ Feedback B and was first heard in February of 1990. Their aim was, as they saw it, to fill a gap by playing music that the other pirates of the day were not playing. This music included Hip Hop, House, Funk, Soul, lovers rock, raga and rare groove.

They had DJs such as Feedback B, Jedi International, Astro G, Tony G, ACJ, Trudy P, DJ Casanova, Micro, Warp, DJ Steph (rare hardcore), Fisher D, Anthony P and Lazer J, but were also keen to recruit more. They used to ask potential DJs to send in demo tapes to their address of 109 Parkfield Estate, Faircroft Road, Castle Bromwich, B36 9UK

Sweet 101 FM had disappeared by the end of 1991, but many of their presenters were later heard on other stations. Feedback B became Dubmaster and presented a show on Kool FM Birmingham.
