What we do?
We are a small community oriented online licenced radio station. We aim to bring our listeners up to date and relevant news about Balsall common as well as information about various events and happenings in and around the area. We aim to offer daily live shows in combination with a selection of some of the best music from the past and present. We are a 24/7 365 always online station that is always supplying great content to our listeners. Even when there isn’t a live show being broadcast it can be a great way to catch up on all the latest music or even find to find a new track that you like.
Where it began?
The initial idea for Balsall Radio came about when a group of college students and other members of the community came together to share a passion for radio broadcasting. The result of this is the creation of Balsall Radio which launched on the 28 July 2016. It took months of preparation to develop the idea and finally on the first of September the station was launched with a joint show featuring Sam and Alex. Since the launch Balsall Radio has been growing exponentially and now has a team of over 8 volunteers that help keep things ticking over – you can read more about them here.
How do we broadcast?
We mainly broadcast our shows from our central studio which is located in Balsall Common. We also offer the opportunity to our presenters to produce content from home if its more convenient. In our current state we are an internet only based radio station that does not actively broadcast on FM/AM/DAB due to the extreme work load and costs associated. This is one of our many ambitions for the future however you can catch us on almost any internet connected device from our smartphone app to the tune-in app on your TV.
