ThisIsAlfred is applying for a community radio licence for Shaftesbury. If we’re successful, the radio station will be based in Shaftesbury and will be broadcasting on FM next year.
Alfred Radio will be a community radio station. There will be no paid staff – everyone involved in the project will be a volunteer.
Would you like to get involved?
If you’re interested in joining our team, tell us what sort of thing you’d like to do. Perhaps you have an interest or passion that you’d like to share by making radio features about it? Maybe you don’t want to be on air but you’re interested in the technical side of radio, research or marketing.
You don’t need any previous experience in radio. The Alfred team will offer free training so you’ll have the skills you need to make radio features, reports, interviews and recordings.
If you live in the SP7 or SP8 postcode areas and you have not worked professionally in media during the past two years, you’re eligible for our free training.
So if that’s you, please get in touch with us at hello@ThisIsAlfred.com. Tell us a little bit about your interests, what you would like to do and we’ll get back to you soon.
We’re planning an open day between 10am and 1pm on Saturday 16th February. If you’d like to get involved, come along and say hello.
Can you tell us what you want to hear on the radio?
Please could you spend five minutes answering our questions? It will help us understand what people want to hear on Shaftesbury’s own community radio.
