Lincolnshire’s Tulip Radio announces closure

Another community radio station has announced its closure – as Spalding and South Holland’s Tulip Radio goes off-air after 15 years.

The station was set up in 2001 and won a full time community radio licence from Ofcom in 2008. It is saying a lack of volunteers is the reason for pulling the plug and turning off the 107.5FM frequency.

A statement from the group says: “It is with great sadness we announce that Tulip Radio is closing at midday on Tuesday, December 13.

“For some time it has become increasingly difficult to find technical staff with musical knowledge to deal with all the issues that affect our radio station; additionally we are finding that the commitment to present regular daily shows during normal working hours has become an impossible task for many of our presenters.

“We have had huge support from local authorities and Armed Forces organisations with whom we have made a number of inspirational programmes. We are also indebted to many local councillors for their belief in us and have enjoyed helping them with local events. Additionally we are very proud to have been involved with the Spalding in Bloom project.

“Our landlords in the Crescent have been ever helpful and fully understand the reasons for this sad decision and we thank them.”
