We are asking you kindly to ‘put your money where your ears are’ and help support the station that reaches around 80,0000 listeners worldwide, is run entirely by 35 volunteers, broadcasts 24/7 365 days of the year with live programmes even going out on Christmas Day and Hogmanay.
It costs around £2,500 per month to keep the station on the air. We rely on donations / sponsorship / advertising. If you could afford to give a donation or even a small monthly donation of £3 – £5, we reckon that’s not a bad return for so much of your kind of music.
