Success for Gaydio RSL

The only community-focused radio station for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans community in Manchester has ended its first broadcast. For the past 2 weeks, Gaydio has been on air across the city and throughout the world on the internet.

With a mix of different programmes including an alternative music programme, talk based community feature, DJ sets and live outside broadcasts from the Manchester Pride festival the station has attracted a huge audience of listeners.

?We?ve worked really hard to market the station, and let people know that we?re out there. While it?s not possible to know exact number of listeners, we literally had hundreds of texts, emails and phone calls each day? says project Manager Ian Wallace. ?The feedback has been amazing and we?ve certainly created a real impact in the community?.

Programme controller Toby Whitehouse adds ?Our coverage of the Pride festival was particularly successful and we had several outside broadcasts from around the festival site, along the parade route and from venues in the gay village?

Gaydio has received support from several organisations including headline sponsor AXM, BBC Radio Manchester, The Lesbian and Gay foundation and Manchester City Council. ?We?ve had so much support and enthusiasm for this broadcast. Many of our presenters and production team have experience working on local radio stations around the North West, but we also wanted to offer development opportunities for people looking to gain some experience?
