Brent YDN is part of the Your Digital Network collective of radio stations, a new digital broadcasting service for people with an interest in their local communities. Based in Neasden we broadcast a number of live radio shows that includes local news, specialist music shows, chat and entertainment.

The Your Digital Network service is pivotal to the local development and growth of the Hidden Creative Economy, especially since mainstrem radio pays little attention to tracks that exist outside of the mainstream charts. This is dispite the high interest in creative media that is consistently displayed amongst local communities.

We were aware of the high number of pirate radio stations that were catering mainly to the musical tastes of local communities throughout Brent, many of which have been operating for over 20 years. Brent YDN now blends the talents of the local communities with the issues and concerns we all are facing.

HISTORY OF REGGAE AUTO PLAY LIST 09:00:00 - 10:00:00

The 1967 edition of the Dictionary of Jamaican English lists reggae as "a recently estab. sp. for rege", as in rege-rege, a word that can mean either "rags, ragged clothing" or "a quarrel, a row". Reggae as a musical term first appeared in print with the 1968 rocksteady hit "Do the Reggay" by The Maytals, but there are many different theories as to how the term originated. The music itself was faster than rocksteady, but tighter and more complex than ska, with obvious debts to both styles, while going beyond them both. Speaking to the term's origins, reggae artist Derrick Morgan stated:


We didn't like the name rock steady, so I tried a different version of 'Fat Man'. It changed the beat again, it used the organ to creep. Bunny Lee, the producer, liked that. He created the sound with the organ and the rhythm guitar. It sounded like 'reggae, reggae' and that name just took off. Bunny Lee started using the world  and soon all the musicians were saying 'reggae, reggae, reggae'.
