HARBOUR RADIO is “NON FOR PROFIT” and our aim is to encourage social gain within the area.
In addition to entertaining and informing, the intention is to reflect the interests and needs of our audience. To that end diversity, cultural programming and a blend of local interest talk and music – much of the latter directly requested by our listenership – is all very much a part of the plan.
As a ‘community radio station’ and 100% voluntary project our aim is not to “talk at” the listener but to create direct links with our listeners thereby becoming an integral part of the local community.
Finally, as a ‘social enterprise’, part of our remit is also to offer training and support to local people interested in acquiring new skills and the knowledge associated with the setup and future running of a radio station.Feedback from our first Restricted Service Licence (RSL) broadcast in January 2014 has shown that listeners appreciate the unique nature of the service, our local content and presenters (and their individual, occasionally quirky, personalities!), the banter between presenters, the wide – unpredictable – variety of music and the fact that we are approachable and not commercially playlist driven.
