POP-UP RADIO COMING TO RUTLAND AND STAMFORD THIS SUMMER

 

We will be out and about this summer staging a series of pop-up radio events, and we're keen to hear from local communities who are interested in hosting the station during our programme of outside broadcasts, to be staged during May, June and July. 

Station Manager, Rob Persani, explained the thinking behind the new initiative:

“Being at the heart of the local community is what we are all about. While many people will be used to seeing us at events across the local area, this summer’s pop-up radio is an opportunity for us to take community radio to new places, including some of the more isolated villages in the local region. As well as using the pop-up radio events to help people learn about their community radio station, we will also be teaming up with local organisations who have important messages to share on services available to help with matters such as mental wellbeing and cost of living pressures. This is a new venture for us, and we are grateful to the National Grid Electricity Transmission’s Community Grant Programme for their financial support in helping to make it happen.”

We are inviting communities who would like to host pop-up radio to contact us. The intention is to cover a broad range of locations, in terms of both geographic spread and size of community, with the station keen to include smaller villages. It is anticipated that most of the pop-up radio events will take place on a weekday morning, although the station will continue to be at weekend events as usual this summer.
