Shefford club member Steve Durham, M0DYR hosted a visit to Radio Peterborough to explain the ‘Hows and Whys’ of broadcast radio.
Radio Peterborough is a local community radio station based in Orton Malborne, Peterborough. They’ve been based in the city since 2010, with numerous successful restricted service licence broadcasts completed on 106.2FM. They continue to broadcast music on their website, just click the LISTEN LIVE button! They want to become the local full time community radio station and have applied to Ofcom for the licence.
The station is a “not for profit” enterprise, and everyone who works for the station does so on a voluntary basis. Many of the city’s best known local radio broadcasters are on the airwaves to support the project. In addition many new voices trained by the station can also be heard presenting a range of programmes during the evenings and weekends. Radio Peterborough is always looking for volunteers to work both on air and behind the scenes – everyone is welcome to participate in this truly local community project.
