Redstone FM ceases broadcasting in Surrey

Community radio station Redstone FM has abruptly ended its transmission on DAB in the Surrey area.

The station pulled the plug at 7pm Friday and says it will relaunch on DAB across Surrey, North Sussex and parts of south & south west London on DAB soon.

A message on the station’s website reads: “Redstone FM is undergoing a restructuring of its business. As part of this development the station has suspended its service on DAB but will relaunch a bigger and better service on DAB soon. In the meantime we continue to broadcast a local radio service for Surrey online and on your mobile device.”

Redstone FM was part of the line-up on the MuxCo Surrey and South London multiplex. A blog post on MuxCo’s website says: “Redstone FM will be taking a short break from the Surrey multiplex as it prepares for its re-launch.”

The station started life via six temporary FM broadcasts from 2005 with most programmes presented by people who are blind or partially-sighted. It applied for a community radio licence but was rejected by Ofcom. It then launched online in 2012 and on DAB in 2013.

MuxCo Surrey and South London covers around 800,000 people in the Surrey and a further three million in South London.

The station is still available online, and boasts radio veteran Roger Day as breakfast host.
