Fun Kids is a radio station for children and their families. Our programmes are specifically for children aged 7 to 12, but we also have some pre-school programming which we broadcast under the Fun Kids Junior banner (weekdays 9am to 3pm).
As will come as no surprise, this includes a lot of songs! Some are from TV shows or kids’ films and others are 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 7pm, the music changes withs songs to relax and chill out too – 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.
