Radio with a difference


UCB 1 – music to your ears

Playing today’s Christian hits and making sense of the world around us.


UCB 2 – good for the soul

Praise and worship and so much more to bring you closer to God.



UCB has been involved in radio broadcasting since 1987.  Today we broadcast nationally to over 53 million people in the UK through DAB digital radio.  Our experienced team of presenters bring a fantastic mix of music, teaching and discussion to anyone interested in exploring Christian faith.



As well as the unique character of each station, UCB also produces specialist music programmes that focus on particular areas of the Christian music genre, from southern gospel or Christian rock to emerging independent artists.

Listen on Digital Radio

You can listen to UCB 1 and UCB 2 on DAB radio (available nationally across the UK).

Digital (DAB) radios are available (starting from around £30) from most electrical retailers and larger supermarkets. Unlike the older style analogue radios, they’re tuned alphabetically, so UCB 1 and UCB 2 doesn’t have a radio frequency. Plug in your DAB radio and scroll to the ‘U’ section until you find us.

UCB 1 is available across the UK wherever there is a DAB signal
UCB 2 is available across the UK, in most major cities and surrounding areas. Check the Postcode checker to see which UCB stations you can get in your area:
