Radio Ramadan

Friday 18 November 2005 11:00-11:30 (Radio 4 FM)

For British Muslims, an increasingly important part of Ramadan is the ability to tune in to local religious radio stations. These stations are given a temporary licence to broadcast 24 hours a day during the holy month.

This year there were 36 'Radio Ramadans' around the country - a far cry from when the first service appeared in Bradford in the early 1990s. Mark Whitaker meets the men and women who staffed stations in Bradford, Rochdale and Edinburgh during October, and reports on what Britain's Muslim communities have been talking and arguing about.
