About us

Welcome to Laser Soul Hits. This website was created in the spring of 2015 by Laser Hot Hits DJ and presenter Gary Drew as a tribute to the 1980's land-based soul pirates from London and the music they played. The first broadcasts of LSH were made on 87.8 FM to a small localised area in the east of England with on-demand content available to listen again online. By summer 2017 LSH was to become more than just a small FM station as live streaming was added turning LSH into a worldwide online radio station playing soul, funk and rare groove with the occasional splash of reggae, dance and hip-hop.   

LSH shares the memories from the London soul pirates by rebroadcasting original and restored pirate archives from the 80's period from stations like Invicta, JFM, Horizon, LWR, Kiss, TKO, Solar and more plus related programmes of interest along the same lines. We also bring you shows from our sister station Laser Hot Hits International and broadcast sponsored shows and content from offshore pirate radio and documentaries for the real radio enthusiast overnight.  

We now broadcast worldwide on the internet 24 hours a day and transmissions continue on 87.8 FM in some areas of Greater North London & 95 FM in parts of Eastern England with additional transmissions from our relay partners on 98 FM  on the south coast of England and other outlets around the world. Shortwave tests took place via a third party on 17th February 2018 on 6240 KHz to Europe and more tests may be considered on HF in the future.

Laser Soul Hits is a sister station to Laser Hot Hits which itself began as an FM pirate radio station broadcasting to the home counties of England in April 1990 and later broadcasts came from London. By 1993 Laser merged with staff from pirate station Hits FM to form Laser Hot Hits International which then moved from FM to shortwave and is still broadcasting today both on shortwave and the internet. The concept for the station LHH came from the former offshore pirate radio station Laser 558 which broadcast in 1984/85 and was later followed by the offshore station Laser Hot Hits from 1986/87. LHH currently broadcasts online 24 hours a day and on 6205 KHz in the 49 meter band shortwave on weekday evenings and all weekend and between 1476 - 1530 KHz medium wave in some areas and on 98 FM on the south coast of England.
