IN THE MIX WITH TCR
ON RECORD teamed up with Toxteth Community Radio (TCR) to present 4 mixes that reflect black music over the past 40 years as part of the inaugural ON RECORD Festival, which celebrates and explores black music on Merseyside.
TCR was originally founded in 1988 by Rico T, Junior and James Klass. It became a home to many of the DJs from Toxteth in Liverpool who brought vibrant music to the airwaves sourced from the American bases and other national and international DJs. Over time the station transpired into a musical, social and political platform as well as a training ground for young people to develop media skills across the board.
The station was resurrected online in April 2020 during the lockdown period as a way to boost community spirits and provide nostalgia and entertainment through music and stories as well as key information to local people in Isolation. TCR is now working in partnership with the Unity Youth Centre where we are engaging with the young people online to create shows, learn skills and are currently fundraising to build a broadcasting suite and audio recording studio.
