About Fun Kids
Fun Kids is about providing good quality programming to entertain children aged 10 and under. Our core audience is between the ages of four and nine, but we have enough to distract those a bit younger and a bit older too!
As will come as no surprise, this includes a lot of songs! Some are from TV shows or kids’ films, some are from nursery rhymes and others from the charts. Some are from nowhere in particular but we know that a high proportion of five year olds stand up and jiggle when they come on.
There are also lots of stories on Fun Kids every day and a steady stream of competitions and news about events.
After 8pm, the programming changes to more of a chill out format – mainly for the benefit of the grown-ups, but safe for children to listen to as well.
What is great about Fun Kids
As well as the important business of entertaining our small listeners, we want Fun Kids to work for the big ones too – parents and carers. We appreciate that you might not want to sing along to all the songs or listen to all the stories but we want you to be comfortable with your children listening to the radio station, even when you are not in the same room.
Everyone knows the power of kids television and how children often can’t get enough. It may be an effective way to park a child for a bit, but we think radio is better for children. When you are listening to the radio you can do other stuff – as adults we know this as millions of people listen to radio on their way to work in the car.
By listening to Fun Kids we think kids can get on with the important business of being kids too.
