Rhondda Radio

Published by Emyr Webster · 9 July at 13:02 ·

We’re almost there! A few more tweaks and we’ll be ready to launch on FM at the end of July. We’re looking forward to working with our friends at GTFM to bring community radio to a larger audience in the valleys.

We wouldn’t have been able to do it if it wasn’t for many people helping along the way. A big thanks you our engineer Andy Bantock . He has been invaluable, and we love having him visit our lovely valley 😊 We’d also like to thank Amgen Rhondda who have helped us with our transmitter.

Also a big thanks to John from John Lewis Access Hire. Our ladders simply wouldn’t reach 😊 If you are doing a job at height, why not give John a ring or visit his website. He’ll get you up there!

And last, but by no means least, the Treorchy and Cwmparc Boys and Girls Club. The club has been a great help over the past few years and thanks to Kath for her support and to Mel, who works tirelessly to keep the club going.

Rhondda Radio, launching on 106.1fm soon!

Hello and welcome to our new Rhondda Radio blog.

Here you will find updated news and info.

The wait is over. We have been given the go ahead by OfCom to broadcast on the FM waveband on the 106.1 frequency.

We will initially be broadcasting to the Rhondda Fawr but are in talks with OfCom to install another antenna to cover the Rhondda Fach. We are hopeful we will get the green light from OfCom and finally be able to provide a great FM quality sound to both valleys.

We will be holding an official launch party on Sunday 29th July at the Treorchy & Cwmparc boys and girls club Treorchy, our radio HQ.

The event takes place from 12-5pm with the big switch on at 1pm by Lloyd Macey.

There will be refreshments and a chance to meet the faces behind Rhondda Radio.

All welcome.


In the meantime you can still enjoy your favourite community radio station by listening online on your mobile devices and computers and laptops.
