After months of planning and hard work, Dumfries’s first 24/7 online radio station will launch on Friday 26 October at 4 pm.
Based in new studios in the grounds of The Crichton, the station has been set up by Dumfries residents Graham Anderson, Fiona Jones and Aaron Kelly who together, bring a wealth of experience to the not-for-profit station which aims to broadcast music, promote local events, groups and organisations; and will reflect the latest news for the town’s community.
Members of the community will play a big part in DCR Online. The aim is to recruit and train a network of community volunteers who will contribute to interviews and features from a large number of events across the town, as well as hosting and presenting specialist shows.
Graham Anderson and Fiona Jones, said, “We are delighted and over the moon to be working together in this joint venture. We love living in Dumfries and are immensely proud of our town, and this is just what it needs as it continues to make huge strides forward.”
“DCR Online will be a voice for and by the community. We will celebrate the positive changes happening in our town and shine a light on the many people who are working to improve life here. Local people will play a big part in our radio output.”
