We launched in May 2020 with just three shows and now have 26 presenters and 24 shows! Originally all the presenters were broadcasting from home and all invested in home studios and training. Now we have a studio space and most of the shows are broadcast live each week from the studio.
What binds us together as a committee is a joint passion for bringing this project forward and providing first class entertainment and news for our listeners. Our ultimate aim is to provide Loughrea with two days of broadcasting via an FM wavelength - made up of music, discussion, documentaries and news. As such we intend to be a valuable tool for bringing the Loughrea community closer together and provide a crucial link for the diaspora.
And we now need YOUR HELP!! Any community radio project relies largely on the support of the community - businesses, individuals, community groups etc - for funding.
Your support would massively enable us to bring this project forward in order that we can fulfill our dream of going live on FM with our broadcasts.
The sooner we are on air the sooner you will all be able to tune in and enjoy the many amazing shows we have planned for you!
We look forward to your kind donations!!
