Have you been listening to the radio recently?
Maybeyou stumbled across the test transmissions emanating from the latest audio entertainment for our area?
Rossendale Radio will be returning on Saturday the 22nd of December 2018 at 10:47 am.
However this will not be like your typical community radio station, nor is it the Rossendale Radio of old.
This will be all new and something like we’ve not heard before.
You might be aware, or have guessed from the title, that this isn’t the first time Rossendale Radio has been on the air. Rossendale Radio was originally formed back in May 2010 but in March of 2012, due to a variety of issues; ceased broadcasting.
The passion was never lost though, because with a dedicated a team of individuals working hard to get the station back on air, including a number of the original team; it has a new lease of life.
“Heartbreakingly Sad” were the words that then volunteer presenter Peter Sweetmore used to describe the closing of Rossendale Radio back in 2012, now Peter is Chairman of the station and has a score to settle.
A great location for the station.
Situated in Hardmans Business Centre in nearby town Rawtenstall, the location allows for coverage well into some areas of Ramsbottom and further (even as far as Bolton).
Speaking to Tony Horne, joint Station Director he said: “This is an amazing opportunity for the people and businesses in the valley, at a time when local radio is all but dead, here comes a radio station that is going to over deliver on its community.”
With regards to what to expect Tony went on to say:
“Exciting programming, different shows and affordable commercial opportunities for businesses, we know that we are building a dream that will outlive us all. We cannot wait for you to hear Rossendale Radio”.
The whole team have been dedicated to this moment and tomorrow will see it be realised.
Well done to all involved as I know it’s been a huge effort and labour of love.
Don’t forget to tune in on Saturday at 10:47 am to check out the all new Rossendale Radio.
