Chorley FM needs a lifeline

A community radio station in Lancashire faces closure due to lack of funds to support it.

Chorley FM, a name known by millions around the world thanks to comedian Peter Kay, has been on-air with a community licence since 2006 but might not last another quarter.

Co-founder Allan Scott told the [link=]Chorley Guardian[/link]: "Peter Kay and his shows have helped to make our name famous, but it is no joke that we are in trouble.

"We tell our presenters not to mention Peter Kay because sometimes businesses don't take us seriously, because they think it does not exist."

Chorley FM won a licence from Ofcom on [link=]8th September 2005[/link].
