Bay FM listener is re-united

A listener to Bay FM was reunited with her niece after hearing her being interviewed on the radio.

The community radio group is currently operating its 4th Restricted Service Licence, and the team are happy to be playing their part in their local community: "At BAY FM, we strive to get involved in the community, and get the community involved in the station," Andy Green, BAY FM’s Station Manager said.

He continued: "With more and more small broadcasters being swallowed up by the main commercial stations, their ability to reflect the needs of local communities decreases. The average listener, living outside the main town, rarely hears anything which touches upon their life, their reality."

The listener in question, Maureen Cawley, said: "Because my surname is quite unusual, I listened more carefully and suddenly realised the paramedic being interviewed was my niece. The last time I saw her was 20 years ago. My partner said the station was just down the road so I rushed down and caught her coming out of the studio. We were all very emotional. I couldn’t believe it."

Bay FM is currently preparing their second application for a full time community radio licence, after their first was declined by Ofcom in 2007.
