KeeP 106 logo

The community radio station from Dorchester has been running for over two years now and listeners in Dorset County Hospital are able to listen via the Internet on their personal devices such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop with headphones/ear buds etc, or, of course, an FM radio on 106.3.

If you would like to be involved with KeeP 106 there are many ways to do so. We need volunteers including presenters, technicians, production assistants, fundraisers and local event reporters.
