Community radio in Britain is a relatively new phenomenon and this year it celebrated its fifth birthday. There are now more than 140 community radio stations broadcasting across the country, giving listeners a choice from different communities of interest. Two of these – New Style Radio in Birmingham and Voice of Africa Radio in London - are giving Africans an opportunity to have their voices heard.
