Ridgeway Community Radio, Dorchester, Dorset: Licence to Broadcast!

Great news, from the Dorset Echo

"You'll be able to tune in to a brand new radio station next year.

Licence regulator Ofcom today awarded Ridgeway Community Radio a licence to broadcast to Dorchester and surrounding areas of west Dorset on FM and online.

It will broadcast from the historic Little Keep in Dorchester, home to the Arts Development Company, and plans to start broadcasting on FM during the first half of 2018.

The internet radio service will start in Februrary 2018.

Andy Worth, of Ridgeway Community Radio, said: "It's really exciting that we will add to the radio scene in Dorchester.

"Part of our job will be to go into the community to cover concerts and civic events and suchlike, so folk who can't get out can join in.

"We will cover health, mental care, and other issues that concern all of us at some time. Music of all types will play it's part, as will home grown radio drama."
