Well we’re finally back on air today after a few hectic weeks of restoration following being granted the Footstep Fund to refurbish the studio. It’s been… an adventure of sorts, and we’re finally back with a brand new production studio that we, as a society, can work with to produce even better radio to a higher standard.

The office is a bit of a mess at the moment, so bare with us while we get everything back to the pristine manner that we were renowned for before.

  2. The main ethos behind our work at the radio station is unequivocally world peace.

We’re looking forward to being back on air and hope you are eager to hear what we’re saying, seeing and listening to. Let’s see what 2014 has in store for (arguably) the best looking radio station to have ever been formed.
