Online Stafford station goes on FM for month

Stafford FM is to run its first RSL broadcast in 8 years, after launching as an online station earlier this month.

The station – which plans to apply for a community radio licence for the town in the next wave of licensing – will be on air for four weeks from early November.

As well as providing commentary on Stafford Rangers matches, the station tell us they will be covering the Christmas lights switch on in the town as part of the RSL which goes live on 87.7FM on 11 November.

Programme Controller Stu Haycock said: “This is wonderful news for the people of Stafford. We’re the only county town in the country that’s still to have its own radio station, and this 28 day trial will show just what we can achieve.”

Nearly 10 years after its initial RSL broadcasts, the station returned to the town on 5 September with a new online stream.
