Give yourself a pat on the back London, because we're the proud broadcasters of the best radio station in the world. Independent station Soho Radio was awarded the accolade at this year’s Online Radio Awards by Mixcloud.
The station has only been on air for two years and was set up by three mates – Finlay Morton, Adrian Meehan and Dan Gray – who felt the airwaves were lacking in an uncensored station where the DJs hand-picked the songs and weren't dictated by playlists. Or as DJ and musician Finlay put it: 'We wanted a station where a presenter could hear a song and say "That’s great" and just play it.'
The trio thought up the station down the pub and it's now broadcast 24/7 from Great Windmill Street. They beat stations from the Middle East, Africa and America to scoop the prize. So next time you have a crazy idea with your mates over a few pints, think of these guys – it might just be a winner.
Here's our pick of the best albums of 2016.
