On this day in history, 13 years ago, Unity 101 Community Radio opened its doors and airways on 101.1 FM for the first time. Back then, Unity 101 had dreams, aspirations, and goals to unite the community and create cohesion and friendship among the people. No matter their background or colour or faoth or whatever else.
Today is our 13th birthday, and this year we have achieved so much.
Kal Aaj Aur Kal musically Play
This was our first musical, produced by Unity 101 Community Radio station. The performance took place at Nuffield Southampton Theatres (NST) on Above Bar Street. 60 volunteers and professionals were involved in this play. All of them contributed to its overwhelming success; with over 795 attendees, over two performances.
Audience members and participants took to social media – in their hundreds – to praise Kal Aaj Aur Kal. Attendees said the show was brilliant, breathtaking, and praised actors, singers, dancers as well as costumes and the whole team who worked on the show.
