Thornbury Radio launches on FM in June 2021!
Due to the tireless hard work of volunteers, Thornbury and the surrounding villages are getting their own FM radio station this year.
Following its successful bid for a full-time FM broadcasting licence, Thornbury Radio – Your Choice, Your Voice! is making its final preparations to launch on FM in June 2021.
The FM service is designed to cover Thornbury and surrounding villages – including Alveston, Olveston, Tytherington, Oldbury-on-Severn, Leyhill, Wickwar, Bagstone and Iron Acton.
The station’s FM launch date is Monday 7th June 2021. You can then listen to Thornbury Radio – Your Choice, Your Voice! on 105.1 FM and 107.5 FM thanks to the transmitters the team have built.
Thornbury Radio’s mission is to give a voice to Thornbury and the surrounding areas. Over the years, more than 300 local volunteers of all ages have delivered local radio programming on the station.
There is still lots of work to do to ensure the success of the station after launch, from training volunteer presenters, through to station admin and ongoing maintenance of the technical kit. If you are interested then please do visit the website below and complete the volunteer form.
David Wrench, Director of the station said, “This is the culmination of a 16-year journey from the Thornbury FM and Gloss FM restricted service broadcasts to the launch of Thornbury Radio. Now everyone in the community of Thornbury and the surrounding villages will have their very own 24hr, 7 days a week FM service. To get to this point has only been possible through the efforts of many volunteers and supporters."
