Radio Floss

 

 

 

Radio Floss was formed by members of the North London based Celebration Radio. The first test broadcast was made in September 1979 with the station opening on the January 13th 1980. Floss became a very reliable station with a varied music output which got progressively heavier as the day wore on. Broadcasts were on 1350Khz every Sunday from North West London. The Floss crew put a lot of effort into site preparation, with excellent aerials and a good earth system resulting in very good coverage from their modest 20w transmitter.

In 1983 Floss started The Floss Rockshow  at the Clarendon Hotel Hammersmith. These gigs became extremely popular and started to make money for the station. After moving to The White Hart in Acton and with more gigs and a heavy rock disco at the Roxborough pub in Harrow, the radio station was to come to the notice of the authorities.

DTI Raids started in earnest in 1984, and by spring 1985 the operators decided enough was enough and the station closed. The Floss rock show continued for many years however.
