Jeo Radio launched around six months ago. Its analogue transmission on 1584AM in North London was abruptly turned-off due to non-payments. This week, the station has replaced its on-air presenters with back-to-back music.

Jeo Radio was touted as Lit’s big comeback to UK Asian radio broadcasting after Sunrise Radio, he had founded, went into administration in 2014. The then Sunrise Radio and Kismat Radio frequencies were acquired by the Lyca Group (now named Lyca Radio 1458AM and Lyca Gold 1035AM). Lit’s son, Tony Lit then took charge of Sunrise Radio, while Avtar moved to India.
