Community station simulcasts with RSL

East Dorset community radio station Forest FM is linking up with a temporary 10-day station that’s on air to cover a local Steam Fair.

Steam Radio, now in its ninth year, will share the drivetime programme with Forest FM for the rest of this week.

The RSL station went on air over the Bank Holiday weekend, with some of Forest FM’s presenters working on the temporary licence, which continues until next Monday (5 September) from the site of the Great Dorset Steam Fair.

Forest FM Station manager Steve Saville told “We just thought it would be something a little different and would be fun and interesting for our presenters and our listeners. We’re sharing Drivetime from August 31st to September 2nd and we’ll be entertaining people with great oldies and steamy interviews as well as keeping everyone up to date with the traffic situation. It gets very busy at the steam fair with 25,000 camping onsite and 200,000 visitors each year over the one week.”
