Following Ujima Radio’s re-launch in September, the award-winning community station is set to see the return of The South West Chart show with new presenters. The specialist music show will return to the airwaves on Friday the 26th of November from 6-8 pm. With nightlife back in full swing, The Chart Show sets the scene for Friday nights out in Bristol.

Hosted by Daboothe, Maxx and Dawn, this new wave of the Chart Show will be an asset to local talent within the city of Bristol and surrounding areas. Ujima Radio’s Chart Show is the only independent chart show in the South West of England that honours emerging underground talent. 

Daboothe, Maxx and Dawn invite underground musicians in the South West to submit their music for radio airplay, with some healthy competition thrown into the mix. At the start of each month, the presenters will play a fresh selection of local music while encouraging listeners to vote for their favourites online. Votes are counted and the top ten selections will be announced the following weeks, with the top three winners announced in the final week of the month.

The Chart Show is one of Ujima Radio’s flagship shows. Previous rounds of the Chart Show have been hosted by Bristol’s Got Talent’s Nia Davis, Channel 4’s Stacey Olika and Wednesday Cruising Show Daboothe.

Last year’s relaunch of the Chart Show received a staggering 10,000 votes on the website between the months of September to November. Lauding a variety of singers, rappers and producers, the show will focus mostly on Rap, R&B and Pop music. 2020 saw a plethora of local talents such as Suchy, Lady Nade, K*Ners, Kavzad, Delocx, KDogg, and more. 

Young rapper KDogg had his radio debut on the Chart Show. His first single “Soon I’ll Be Just Fine” reached number 2 in March 2020. “I’m glad that the chart show is back! It brought a togetherness in the South West music scene and I’ve personally been waiting to submit my music  again and see well it does” – Kdogg

The show’s presenters are true music connoisseurs; heavily involved in the depths of Bristol’s rich and unique music scene. Daboothe and Maxx are renowned presenters of Wednesday Cruising and  “In The Now” which airs on stations nationwide. The pair are revered within the city’s Urban music scene and are well-known for their sharp, witty and upbeat presenting style. 

Rise Up Breakfast Show host Dawn looks forward to joining the pair, bringing along her eclectic taste in music. Dawn is a Journalist and up-and-coming DJ who loves to enjoy the fruits of Bristol’s energetic nightlife. 

“I’m constantly amazed by how talented and creative the city of Bristol is. In my 4 years living here, I have come across some incredible talent and really want to see Bristol’s musicians rise to the top!” – Dawn

“I am so excited for the relaunch of The Chart Show! A radio show that promotes emerging artists whilst encouraging healthy competition is exactly what the South West needs to elevate the talent within it.” – Maxx

“The chart show return is so great for emerging artists, it’s another small indicator of knowing if your song is a vibe!” – Daboothe

NHS Organ Donation Week 2021

Ujima speaks to

Kate Anolue – a community leader and a former Mayor


Pastor Ian Sweeneys (faith leader)

What is organ donation and why is it important?


Organ donation is giving an organ to someone else who needs a transplant. This donation will greatly enhance or save the life of the person who receives the transplanted organ. This is even more important in ethnic communities as the requirement is high. Blood and tissue types need to match for a transplant to be successful, and organs from donors of the same ethnic background as the recipient are more likely to be a suitable match. Organ donation is an amazingly generous act and can save thousands of lives within our community every year. It is therefore very important to talk to your family about organ donation so hat they know about your decision, and it doesn’t come as a surprise to them. You should visit organdonation.nhs.uk for more information.

How to talk about organ donation with the family?

Your family will always be asked to support your decision but can overturn it if they aren’t sure what you want.

Follow these simple steps to get your conversation started and leave your loved ones certain about what you’ve decided.

1. Get the facts – Read up about organ donation on organdonation.nhs.uk

2. Find a talking point – Try talking about something you’ve seen in the news or on social media if it helps.

3. Relax – Have your chat over a cup of tea, or when spending time together.

4. Speak from the heart – Be as honest and open as you can be and listen to each other. You don’t have to agree!

5. Talk about your beliefs – Whatever your faith or beliefs, make them part of the conversation. Get helpful advice from our website or speak to your faith leader.

6. Grab the moment – Don’t put it off until tomorrow. If it seems like the right time, go for it! Get the whole family involved.
