It is largely staffed by volunteers. It is less than 2 years old its making a big difference to the community in and around Bolton. It has great growth potential, spreads the word of 'Bolton' across the world by way of its very frequent mention of Bolton via internet broadcasts.

local news and topics, great music and chat and being kept informed with traffic reports on the local roads.
I love that the radio station is a real community effort, for example the community getting together to create a broadcastable radio station. The roadshows also allow the community to get together :) All the shows also involve everybody from teenagers to the oldies!
I love how anyone in the community can be a part of this friendly group! They can become volunteers and are taught essential skills, not only for employment but also personal development. They can make friends, have work opportunities, build essential confidence and most importantly, strengthen the community!
I love what they do and love listening to Bolton FM!
The ability to inform the people of Bolton about things that are of interest to them and hopefully help with social cohesion that is so important to the towns success
Broadcasting to Bolton people is a privilege
I listen to Bolton FM every day both in my car and in my office, and i love it! What a great station. Lots of good music, easy to listen to and some really interesting shows. I have advertised on the station - it was excellent value for money and delivered me some results!
So come on Bolton! Get support your local community station and get listening...

We used Bolton FM as part of our early advertising strategy with thebestof bolton, we had heard only positive things about Bolton FM and its operation and so felt that radio advertising with them would be a great way to get our message out to not only the people of Bolton but also the business sector too. It worked, we were heard and people commented that they has heard us on the radio. We are just about to embark on our third round of advertising with Bolton FM and are looking forward to the rewards it brings.
