This is Radio Frampton
FRAMPTON Cotterell now has its own radio station.
Set up by the charity Frampton Community Projects, Radio Frampton is broadcasting online, three times a week.
The community initiative aims to give people the chance to try presenting, producing, engineering or writing in a safe and enjoyable environment.
Andrew Walker, from the charity, is presenting a show on the station with help from his daughter, Hollie, above.
He said: “It’s the same principle with all our projects, it’s to give folk the opportunity to try something new, and experience it for real.”
The station currently broadcasts between 6pm and 8pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Its team aims to be at the Brockeridge Centre for the live Wednesday show from 6pm to 8pm each week.
Programmes are mainly music-based but also features question and answer shows, and recently had Jack Lopresti, the Conservative MP for Filton and Bradley Stoke, whose constituency includes Winterbourne, as a guest.
The station can be found online at framptoncp.org/radio/ and can also be accessed using the LIVE365 app on either Apple or Android.
Frampton Community Projects is looking for more people to get involved as DJs, presenters, writers during the station’s trial run.
The charity said on its website: “As with all our aims, we look to provide new opportunities to everyone, while benefiting the local community.
“With the Radio Frampton project we seek to provide radio presenting or producing, writing or engineering, experiences in an environment which is safe, fun, while allowing you to explore, and experience.
“We also seek to find new bands, solos, singers, to share their own creations.”
Other Frampton Community Projects schemes include an electronics club, drone flying club and a live-streaming drama club.
