Support your local radio station
Friday 5th December
This week I’ve mostly been learning lots of things I didn’t know about Swindon’s community radio station: Swindon 105.5 but more of that in another post I reckon. I ‘appeared’ on the station this very afternoon to talk about this very blog, Born again Swindonian. Which was fab! And that’s where I learnt quite a lot about the station.
For now though I want to give a shout out to a fundraising initiative the station has running that needs input from Swindon businesses. And the station NEEDS funds in order to survive because it’s not, and isn’t allowed to be, commercial – something I hadn’t realized until today. Nor does it receive any local funding.
Throughout December, Swindon businesses have a unique opportunity to: give their business a shout-out to the community and potential customers, say thank you to existing customers or whomever they so wish, pick a song to be played and support the radio station at the same time by paying a measly £10 for the privilege. It’s my understanding that the breakfast show on Swindon 105.5 has 10,000 listeners. That’s a big hit rate for £10 – an amount that barely buys a couple of coffees and cake in Costa lotta.
I have practised what I’m preaching and kicked off this initiative on Monday morning of this week to give a plug to my start up business AA Editorial Services and to say thank you to so many people that have been a support to me in the last few months of starting on my business journey.
So now, in the manner of all good sales pitches, here comes the call to action: If you’d like to support the station in this fundraising initiative then get in touch with the station or with the lovely and very hardworking station manager, Shirley Ludford.
