Polish Radio London

Polish Radio London (also known as PRL 24) is a radio channel designed for Polish audience in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

PRL 24 was launched on 13 December 2006. It is available on DAB in the London area only and over the internet. The transmission on digital satellite has now ceased.

The abbreviation "PRL" refers in a comic way to the abbreviation of the former official name of the Polish State under communist rule (translating as the People's Republic of Poland).

The radio is partnered with a Polish free weekly print magazine, Cooltura.

Although claiming to target a Polish-speaking audience, most of the programme time is in fact filled with English-language contemporary pop and club music, with very little Polish music being played. This, along with the limited on-air coverage may explain the popularity of the service among Polish expatriates.
