We are setting up a brand new community radio station for everyone in Essex called 'Essex Community Radio'. Essex Community Radio Station is for the people in Essex and the surrounding area. It provides a service to reach and involve the communities of Essex including Wickford, Billericay Rayleigh, Southend, Basildon, Chelmsford, Colchester, Harlow, Clacton-On-Sea, Brentwood, Maldon to name a few and enhance community spirit. We want to provide the residents in Essex a new, fresh and complete community radio station advertising local theatre shows & concerts, sport, travel news, weather & shows that the community would like to hear. We will have shows that cater for all audiences including Pop, Jazz, Classical, R&B Country e.t.c We will also have a Local Artist programme where local singers & bands can send in their music and we will give them the promotional platform they need and play their music to promote their local image.

What we'll deliver:

  • Brand New Community Radio Station

Why it's a great idea:
