The annual celebration of the historical contribution of Black people over the years sees Punch providing a unique series of radio programmes entitled “The Black History Month – Music Hall Of Fame”.

Over the course of October, Punch will be saluting some of the historical icons of black music that have been instrumental in shaping and creating the vibrant and successful industries we have today.

Each daily programme will focus on one musical icon outlining biographical facts including highlights and achievements in the industry, giving us the perfect opportunity to grace each show with a landmark track created by our chosen artists. The Music Hall of Fame will be broadcasted daily across 18 radio platforms nationwide. This special programme is set to be delivered by highly qualified radio producers, with a combined experience of over 30 years at national radio level and with in excess of 6 acclaimed Sony Radio Awards between them.

Our inspiration is to bring limelight on the timeless legends that have built successful artist careers and made a long lasting difference and presence through their music. The programme has a view to entertaining, educating and saluting the value of black music throughout the ages. See below for the list of participating radio channels and cities that will be broadcasting our show.
