A guest panel of veteran DJs Daddy Ernie, George Kay and Lewis Benn will be speaking about the affect the stations have had on the music industry since they were established in 1970s and their current state today.

The event will be hosted by DJs Lindsay Wesker and Dave VJ, authors of ‘Masters Of The Airwaves’, the history of British black music radio.

There will be signed copies of the book for sale.

Mr Wesker, who lives in Harlesden, said: “Dave and I both started on unlicensed radio in the 80s because we wanted to share our music with people. Nothing has changed. We both now work on www.mi-soul.com and work for free just because we want to share our music but, sadly, there is now no longer a London-wide black radio station on FM.”

The event is taking place at Harlesden Library in Craven Park Road, Harlesden, from 6.30pm – 7.45pm.
