Silver FM, a radio station that provides a unique learning experience to first time broadcasters from local schools in Year 10-13 is back on the airwaves and will be broadcasting on FM radio up to and on Christmas Day - playing non-stop Christmas Songs with no commercials for you to enjoy listening to whilst you tuck in to your Turkey at home with the family..
The radio station which has been licensed by Ofcom (the governments office of communications) took on the ambitous feat of broadcasting LIVE from across the town over three weeks.
So far the radio station has been broadcast live from ASDA at the Dome, B & Q at Bushey Arches, Francis Combe School & Kings Langley School with more broadcasts planned over the coming week from The Market, The Ice Rink & the offices at W3RT.
The students have also interviewed MP Richard Harrington, and Cllr Frances Button, Chair of Hertfordshire County Council.
David Rees, Project Manager, said “What a rewarding project! The last 2 weeks, we have turned over 20 young people into broadcasters, built their confidence and created some great (and some not so great) radio to boot. On top of it all, the team have been hugely ambitious and delivered more outside broadcasts than any other RSL Radio Station we are aware of, plus interviews with MP’s, Councillors and hopefully our Mayor Dorothy this week. We are delighted with the response from local people & businesses and I can’t wait to listen to the station on Christmas Day with my family. Merry Christmas Everyone”
