Legacy901 CIC was registered on 16th March 2021. A CIC is a Community Interest Company which is a social enterprise. CIC's are recognised as not-for-profit companies and they have to report annually on how much benefit they have been to their community. We are really excited to be starting this new journey and achieving even greater benefit to the African and Caribbean communities in Manchester and further away.

We are so happy that the CIC Regulator agreed that our community radio station will help to:

  • Support the music industry in Manchester and further afield.
  • Promote and give a platform to music of Black origin and grassroots musicians and singers.
  • Train the next generation of music industry leaders, DJs, broadcasters and producers.

The change of structure will emphasis our commitment to African and Caribbean music, to the radio industry and most importantly, to the Black communities of Manchester.

Adapting to Change at Legacy

Here at Legacy 90.1 FM we have found ourselves having to adapt quickly to our new pandemic world.

When lockdown was imminent, we sprang into action getting our DJs and broadcasters set up to work from home. Our radio schedule isn’t 24 hours a day as it usually is but we think we’ve done pretty good, with the support of our amazing presenters to keep broadcasting from 7am until 1.30am every weekday and 7am until 3.30am over the weekend throughout.

As we come out of lockdown, more DJs will be presenting and we will slowly - and SAFELY - get more DJs back into the studio and move towards a full schedule. Keep checking the radio schedule page to see who's on.
