Manchester community station Gaydio is planning a come back in February 2007. The news comes just weeks after its first trial broadcast ended.
Gaydio first broadcast from Manchester's gay village in August this year using an RSL licence from Ofcom.
On the next trail , the team will be broadcasting great music and entertainment alongside all the latest LGBT news for 4 weeks.
"I think our first broadcast surpassed all of our expectations in terms of the diversity of content and the people who got involved. We want to build from this for our second run” says Project Manager Ian Wallace. Programme Controller, Toby Whitehouse adds "Our Summer broadcast was heavily focussed on the Pride festival, which is why we chose that time to launch. Now its time to show that we can maintain a fantastic output aimed specifically at the LGBT community at any time of the year".
Gaydio will be harnessing the great talent of many presenters, DJs, researchers, journalists, music buffs and technicians who were part of the Summer broadcast, but the team are also very keen to welcome new faces who want to get involved in this exciting project. Anyone who wishes to get involved with the month-long broadcast should visit the website at gaydio.co.uk or send an email to [email protected]
Canal Street’s AXM bar is the headline sponsor once more as Gaydio broadcasts live from its natural home in Manchester’s gay village. Once again, The Lesbian and Gay Foundation are housing the station enabling it to broadcast 24 hours a day across Greater Manchester on FM and all over the world via the station’s website.
"If you enjoyed what we did first time round, then you’ll love what we’ve got planned for February. This time we’re going to be doing huge things which really will put the station at the heart of the community again" says Ian. Gaydio will be out and proud across Manchester, and the world, from February 5th.
