Trouble at SFM as live shows are postponed
Community radio station SFM is currently not broadcasting as per its Key Commitments – with no live programmes on-air.
The station tweeted on Wednesday 5th April to say “Due to essential maintenance work we are unable broadcast LIVE. We will be back soon – sorry for any inconvenience caused. #Sittingbourne”.
Station Manager Pete Fylnn contacted all volunteers at the station to say his contract of employment as Station Manager has expired, and that he is no longer responsible for the day to day running of the radio station. He also requests that nobody contacts him with regards any matters concerning the radio station.
The station should be providing “locally-produced output for a minimum of 13 hours per day”, which excludes automated non-stop music.
SFM is still airing commercials and national news but all live programmes have been cancelled for now, and one source told RadioToday that no volunteers are allowed to enter the building.
