ABOUT WEEKEND RUSH
The Beginning - 1997
The Weekend Rush began live broadcasts on the net in April 1997. The aim of the station was to promote and beam underground dance music across the globe using the new broadcasting technology on the Internet.
Unlike many other stations on the Internet, our intensions are purely musical - not financial! With the support of our sponsors and network partners we are able to broadcast the finest old skool, house, garage, jungle, drum n bass, breaks and other sub-genres of underground music direct to your desktop without commercials or other advertising! We are not about corporate restrictions or policies, it's all about the music.
In August 2001, Weekend Rush was forced to close down due to our sponsors at the time abruptly withdrawing support; no warning and no explanation. With this unexplained withdrawal of support, we were left without a home - our domain names, servers and connectivity were taken from us.
After securing one of the original domain names, www.weekend-rush.co.uk, we planned to relaunch the site as a music news portal with an online radio station.
2003 - Back To Basics
It's 2003 and we are back! Although we're on a much smaller scale than we were back in the "good old days", we are aiming again to make Weekend Rush the success story it once was.
