We have heard the most exciting news today! Ofcom has awarded Alfred a broadcast radio licence for Shaftesbury and the surrounding villages.
You will be able to hear Alfred on FM at home, in the garden or in the car. We will bring you daily Shaftesbury news, information, weather, what’s ons and conversation. Alfred will broadcast local music too. Matt and Steve Appleby’s Carnival Show will also be on our schedule.
We’re not sure when your new local service will start. It will take at least a year. There’s lot of red tape, but we have the green light and we thought you’d like to know!
All of our team will be volunteers and the station will be a not-for-profit service with no shareholders. It will be operated for our community, like ThisIsAlfred.com.
If you want to join our group to make programmes or presenter features on topics that matter to you, email hello@thisisAlfred.com and let’s have a chat. If you follow us on Facebook you will continue to receive our daily Shaftesbury area news reports and radio project updates.
