LOGO UPDATE FOR SOLAR RADIO
We are pleased to unveil an updated logo for SOLAR RADIO, courtesy of DAVID LEWIS of INITIO DESIGN LTD. The new logo in its basic format will be seen with either the white or the yellow starburst, and in extended format will also carry the station strap-line of "Classic & 21st Century Soul". Customised versions will also be available for use by each DJ in connection with their shows. We would remind you, however, that the logo, including the text, orb and starburst designs, is a Registered Trademark and thus legally protected, and should not be reproduced without permission.
