UnMuted Radio

Hello! This is the Gutenberg block you can edit directly from the WPBakery Page Builder.

As part of our ongoing work to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing we were approached to launch a monthly show on Black Country Xtra radio.  Unmuted, is a show led by young people for young people and aims to make some noise for mental health.  Our show provides a platform to connect with other young people through music, interviews and fun debates.


Our team of hosts and content creators range from 11-16 years old.  Each show is created to highlight key themes and we are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to interview some incredible people.  Our previous guests have included:

  • Roman Kemp, presenter and interviewer
  • Liberty Poole, Love Island star and body positivity activist
  • Daniel Wilsher, motivational speaker
  • Hope Virgo, award winning mental health campaigner
  • Elliot Stewart, Paralympic Silver Judo Medallist
  • InPower Academy
  • Warren’s Hall Riding School
  • Sandwell Young People’s Services
  • Kaleidoscope
  • Birmingham Children’s Hospital
  • Mala Llama
  • PolarBear, spoken word artist
  • West Midlands Police Cadets
  • Alison Cope, Anti-Violence Campaigner
  • Simeon Beckett, West End Performer
