Radio Abbey was set up in December 2008, as part of the Kenilworth Youth Centre regeneration scheme. It is located itself in the Youth Centre and originally broadcast on Tuesday and Thursdays, between 7pm to 9pm. As of June 2009, it has started broadcasting on Wednesdays. The radio station used a popular text in service for requests. The station played specific music genres at set times every 30 minutes, and was hosted by a teenage volunteer. There were usually 4 presenters on per night. Radio Abbey did not play during holidays. In May 2009, Radio Abbey canned the text service, leaving the popular email service alive.
