New Style Radio 98.7 FM is a community radio station based in Birmingham, England, and broadcasting to the city's African-Caribbean community. The station, launched on 14 August 2002, was born out of 15 years of short-term radio broadcasting and training.

The service is intended to be reflective of African-Caribbean culture and aspiration in particular and of multicultural Birmingham in general. It is historical in being the first licensed African-Caribbean radio station in Britain.

New Style Radio is run mainly by unpaid volunteers and is part of the Afro-Caribbean Millennium Centre (Charity No: 519691), a registered charity set up to support the educational and social needs of the Afro-Caribbean community in the West Midlands.


The full schedule is available on the station's official website.
