About Us

Who We Are

Chill started from an experiment. A bunch of like-minded people who swapped mixes and compilations, to help each other chill, wondered what could happen if we did this on a radio station. Could we keep finding music that amazes, amuses, relaxes and inspires us? Would other people get it, even if we didn’t sound like a normal radio station?

We tried it. People like you found it and joined in. Now more than ever, we need to chill in a stressful world, so we’re happy to be growing, sharing ideas and playlists, chatting online and keeping pure, beautiful music on air to help you chill.

Chill is part of Global Radio. We have a team of producers who make mixes and do a lot of listening, to music we find and to your suggestions. On air and on this site, you’ll find many tunes found or even made by our audience. So meet the team, and whenever you get the chance, get involved and chill with us.

How to listen

Chill is on DAB digital radio in London and the East Midlands. You can also listen on this site, or using the free Radio Player app in the UK. We’re also listed on most internet radio directories – just search for “chill.” (including a full stop.)
