Radio Melksham

Tuesday 3rd March, 2020

The team behind Radio Melksham are pleased to announce that the industry regulator Ofcom has awarded Radio Melksham Limited a license to provide a community radio service for the town of Melksham in Wiltshire. We would like to thank everyone involved in our efforts to get this far - but now the hard work really begins! We will be working to build further financial support for the project, and hope to announce our plans soon.

The team behind a highly successful radio station in Wiltshire is planning to bring its expertise to Melksham following a recent announcement by Ofcom.

Fantasy Radio, based in Devizes, has been broadcasting full-time across Wiltshire since 2012 and has built up a loyal following in the Melksham area too. Many listeners in the town contact the station regularly with information, music requests and news stories.

A spokesperson said: "We intend to bring a First Class radio station directly to the community of Melksham, dedicated to local people, organisations and businesses. The sound will be professional, entertaining and above all accessible by the people of the town and surrounding villages.

We will be a not-for-profit company, reliant on volunteers, so we want to invite Melksham people to become involved in the new station either as broadcasters or background staff".

Several members of our team are already based in Melksham and we have good contacts with local enterprises in the town.

It may be some time before we get the go-ahead from the regulator, but our application is in place as we await further announcements.
