We're always made welcome at Bolton FM and they're keen to help local businesses to get their message out to the wider community. The presenters are professional and keen to engage with local business. Their offer of 99 ad's for £99 is a fantastic and cost-effective way to promote your business.
I love Bolton FM as it is a truly local community station that covers news and events in Bolton. Other radio stations in my area never even mention Bolton.They play a great cross section of music aswell. It is run by volunteers who are all very professional in how they do their shows. It is a truly local radio station catering for the needs of people in Bolton.
Bolton FM is simply part of the Bolton community and is run for and by people from Bolton. They provide local information, local news and some great music. The website is also very helpful and it is good the way they link with the Bolton News, the Council and support local initiatives on air.
It provides great information and music to the people of Bolton whilst fulfilling the needs of the community by speaking to local people in their profession, whether it be sport, business, retail etc. It is also run by over 60 volunteers who want to help the station mean something to the listeners both on and off air.
Bolton FM are 'The Voice of the Bolton Family' and can reach parts of Bolton that other stations do not reach. Always professional, always local!
This is a great service and organisation. To say it's manned and operated by volunteers, considering the professionalism and quality of the service delivery is a great testament to the organisation. We've been regularly featured in programs and used the advertising aspect of the station and have always been treated professionally and appropriately. I can't recommend BoltonFM highly enough for businesses to use as a marketing and PR facility. Well done guys, keep up the good work!
Bolton FM have been a great support to my local business and many, many friend's businesses too. The main attraction for my kids is definitely Big H playing Fraggle Rock on a Friday afternoon.
The best local station, they bring the whole of Bolton together with music, great entertainment, chat and news. Always worth a listen!
I love Bolton FM. They are so supportive, engaging and community minded. They've been amazing backing BYPHS and our campaigns to help young homeless people.
Bolton FM have been an incredible support for the Club, ensuring we get our message out across the town, wether that's looking for local people to volunteer, sharing our great news, marketing events and fundraising opportunities and offering to help BLGC with our future plans to set up an internal radio broadcast managed by young people. What a fantastic asset to the town they are !
I have been supported incredibly by Bolton FM over the past several years. Keith Harris is my go to for everything. They have publicised all my work for charities and recently even did a marathon for me (well a Relay marathon!!!) as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Diamond award challenge I am leading on for University of Bolton. They are wonderful!
I love that Bolton FM is at the heart of the community, helping to bring people together across cultures and from diverse backgrounds. Bolton FM is passionate about music and brings a strong local aspect to all broadcasts, outside and in the studio. Volunteers work tirelessly to run a radio station that would give any commercial radio station, a run for its money.
Bolton FM is a valued local station which covers news and information about Bolton to their listeners. No other local station covers stories about Bolton as it is deemed too local. 96.5 Bolton FM is the voice for Bolton letting listeners know what is happening in the town along with charity news/events/Bolton sport and much more. They also play a good selection of music covering the last 5 decades. For any local business wanting to reach Bolton clients it is an ideal platform. Andy Haslam
There are things that say they are local because they want to sell you something, and then things which are local because they care about the local people - THAT is Bolton FM There are radio stations who see their listeners as audience, numbers to be counted, and then there are those who see their audience as friends - THAT is Bolton FM There are some radio stations who turn up for events because it is a paid job, there are others who turn up because they are a part of the community they serve - THAT is Bolton FM. Bolton FM - the radio station for the people of Bolton, presented and produced by the people of Bolton, because they really are the heart of the Bolton family.
A Fantastic local voice! Variety of content and run entirely by volunteers who love their community!
listening to the Community Corner programme I now realise how many Community are organisations there are in Bolton and appreciate the work they carry out in Bolton. Without the air time,onBoltonFM, we would not be aware of these activities. . Well done Tony David and the Community Corner team.
Our business advertises on Bolton FM, they have been brilliant with us and so helpful from advising us what will work and working of our advert. I would recommend advertising with Bolton FM.
Bolton FM are again a media partner for us at the Big Bolton Expo and its grea tto have them back on board. The exhibitors and delegates love their presence, their live road show and their on air interviews which all add to a great atmosphere at the event.
I have met various members of Bolton FM through the Big Bolton Expo and various advertising campaigns throughout the last few years. They are always welcoming, friendly and professional in their approach, and even made me feel confident enough to record my own advertisement rather than have a voice-over artist on my next venture.
Bolton FM came along to our recent expo supporting us with a wonderful roadshow. They were fully set up in no time and helped make the event a success
Bolton FM again supported us with their fantastic roadshow at the Big Bolton Expo. They arrived on time, were professional in their approach and did a great job in promoting the Expo before, during and with follow up interviews.
I was recently asked to be a business member of the panel on their election program for GE2015 and have to say found the experience thoroughly enjoyable if a little tiring as we headed into the small hours. Kevan, Keith and his engineers looked after me with regular cuppas and also allowed me to promote my business within the context of policies promoted by the future government, so thank you all round for a great experience!
Really grateful for the way Keith has taken us under his wing and is publicising Zac's and their events.
Bolton FM were again one of our media partners for the Big Bolton Expo and provided a road show at the event. They were excellent. They were well staffed, well organised and demonstrated real professionalism required at a business event such as this. The exhibitors and delegates alike loved the interaction they provided and they really assisted in making it a memorable event.
I love the diversity of music it provides along with its constant participation with in the local community, It really brings Bolton together by amplifying the town's diversity and can do attitude.
