Spark FM live broadcasting from UK. Spark FM is an international online radio station playing a fresh, uplifting and electric music format for a global audience. Spark FM are an independent station for the online generation, connecting those who already have a strong connection with UK.

Spark FM, known formerly as 107 Spark FM, is a community radio station serving 15- to 25-year-olds in the Sunderland area. Spark carries a variety of content catering for both mainstream and niche musical audiences, specialising in chart hits and new music throughout the day, and specialist programming after 7PM. The radio station broadcasts on 107.00FM and online via the station’s website. The official launch of 107 Spark FM took place at the new £12 million CitySpace building in the centre of the city of Sunderland.

The station began broadcasting in November 1997 as Radio Utopia a two-week short term broadcast under the (then) Radio Authority’s Restricted Service Licence (RSL) scheme. The station was part of a regional arts festival called “Visions of Utopia” and the station reflected the scheme and carried various programmes tied-in with the scheme, such as “The Quakies” a programme produced by children from the former pit village of Quaking Houses in County Durham. Radio broadcasting predated this by several years, with student programming on the community radio station Wear FM, which closed in 1995 and is now the more commercial station Sun FM. The station was low powered but still proved valuable as a training ground for new broadcasters. Programmes were broadcast from studios in the Forster Building, formerly used by Wear FM, with a transmitter on the roof.
