Initial Statement in Response to Pxssy Palace

Radar is a young station built on a commitment to championing talent from all backgrounds, communities and beliefs.

Radar is a young station built on a commitment to championing talent from all backgrounds, communities and beliefs. We are proud of what we’ve achieved in our three years as a company. This is down to the day-to-day dedication and hard work of our staff and everyone else involved in the station.

We were very concerned and disappointed to see the statement from Pxssy Palace suggesting that we are getting some important aspects wrong. 

We don’t agree with all the opinions in that statement but like most organisations we know we are capable of making mistakes and have to be vigilant to maintain standards. 

We have taken immediate action to review and assess any shortcomings with the input of all Radar staff, especially those who are female, LGBTQI+ and POC.

We will continue to improve how we operate as a workplace to ensure we host a safe, inclusive space for both Radar’s staff and guests and maintain an ongoing conversation with staff. 

We unreservedly apologise to anybody who has felt unsafe or discriminated against at Radar Radio, either via programming or content or within the building. This was never our intention.

We thank Pxssy Palace for their statement and for continuing to finish their QTIPOC workshops at Radar and hope we can work with them again in the future.
