An Radio Online
The new Uist community radio station “An Radio” took a major step forward over the weekend when it started broadcasting online. Just go to their website at www.anradio.info and then click on the “An Radio Player” icon. It’s still early days for the station, but you’ll find plenty of music, interspersed with samples of local features and interviews. An Radio has already started recruiting volunteers to get involved in the project. If you’re interested you can get in touch through the website.
Clearly, there are and will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in making it a genuine community venture, and maximising local content. Island Voices/Guthan nan Eilean can help too! You will already hear some examples from our archive on the An Radio playlists, and we stand ready to assist anyone who wants to “dip their toe in the water”…. Good luck!
