KeeP 106 – Community Radio News
OFCOM allocate our frequency
As some of you will already know OFCOM have allocated 106.3 Mhz FM as our frequency. This is a good allocation as the only stations using this frequency in the south of the UK are a station in Bridgend in South Wales and according to OFCOM a station in the Exeter area but I was unable to find this stations listed. Neither of these station will affect reception in the local area. (more…)
We are planning that the new community radio station, KeeP 106, will start broadcasting in June or before but, naturally, it all costs money and already some local grants have contributed generously to the cause. But we have to raise even more so we are planning a huge sale of music….and by that we mean old vinyl records, CDs, music DVDs and cassettes. We have not yet set a date for the sale (watch this space) but we are collecting music now. If you can help with donations of your unwanted LPs, CDs and cassettes please contact Ridgeway Community Radio secretary, Rob Mott, on 07900 027917 or at the Little Keep Studios on 01305 267545 or use this form.
