Switch Radio (also known as Switch Radio 107.5) is a British community radio station, broadcasting from the North East Birmingham region, which transmits 24 hours a day on 107.5 FM, local DAB and via Internet radio.

History[edit]

The station began life under its previous name, Vale FM, when it was formed by residents from the Castle Vale estate in north east Birmingham in 1995. Switch Radio launched in April 2010 and still broadcasts from Castle Vale.[2]
