Consultation: Lyca Dilse Radio – Request to change Format

  • Start: 30 April 2021
  • Status: Open
  • End: 28 May 2021

Lyca Media II Ltd wishes to change the ‘Character of Service’ of one of its Greater London licences, which broadcasts as ‘Lyca Dilse Radio’, from:

“An interactive speech-based station targeted at over-35s in the various Asian communities around London, accompanied by a mix of popular forms of music appealing to the target audience. Speech (expected to comprise at least half of daytime, and maybe less out of daytime) may be in English but should encourage a multi-lingual environment.”


“A retro Asian music radio station targeting over 40-year old Asians in London. Playing music from 50s to 90s era & no current music. Also inclusion of lifestyle speech.”

We have taken a preliminary view on the request and are minded to grant it. However, we are seeking views on the request before we make a decision. The consultation closes at 5pm on 28 May 2021.
