Wessex FM celebrates 21 years on the air

Wessex FM celebrated its 21st Birthday today as the UKRD station gets ready to move to a new studio complex.

The station covers the Weymouth, Dorchester and Bridport areas of Dorset and launched on September 4th 1993. It has kept the same name and format during its full 21 years of broadcasting.

To celebrate the station has been out in each of the towns it covers with birthday cakes for listeners to share. It has also created a ‘retro’ logo incorporating the original text for the month.

Presenter Dave Goulden: “The response from our listeners is amazing, we are literally mobbed when we unload the cake.”

The station is preparing to move into new premises within Dorchester, as Managing Director Steve Bulley reveals to RadioToday: “It’s an exciting time for the Wessex FM team, our brand new building and studios are almost completed which will be transformational for our business”.
