Introduction and History

Before breaking into the mainstream market, So Solid had been involved with many pirate radio stations in London, such as Supreme FM and Delight FM (103.0 MHz). It was at delight where they made their name, occupying most of the Sunday schedule, the so-called "So Solid Sundays". From around lunchtime until 10pm, there were shows from different members, where the various So Solid DJs would play dubstep and 2 step UK garage tracks. At times the So Solid MCs would rap on top of the tracks for up to two hours each session. At the height of their career, Delight FM had over 10,000 listeners[citation needed]. On Christmas Day in 2001, So Solid performed their last Sunday show on the station. The term Pirate Radio usually refers to illegal or unregulated radio transmission. ...
