Bradley Stoke Radio (BSR) has begun broadcasting on FM, nearly two years after being offered a full-time licence by Ofcom.
The community radio station previously broadcast on FM for two short periods in June and December 2011, under a Restricted Service Licence (RSL), and since then has been streaming programmes over the internet.
Based at the Brook Way Activity Centre, in accommodation provided at a peppercorn rent by Bradley Stoke Town Council, the station says its new FM channel can be received loud and clear in Bradley Stoke, Little Stoke, Stoke Lodge, Stoke Gifford, Frampton Cotterell, Patchway and Winterbourne.
The first official programme on the new FM frequency of 103.4 MHz went out just after 6pm on Friday (13th September), presented by Becky Ward (pictured).
Programmes broadcast on Friday included the Pick and Mix Show, the Rock Show and Metal to Midnight.
Community-focussed programmes in the station’s weekly schedule include the Sport Show (Sundays at 6pm) and the School Show (Mondays at 6pm).
