Bedford Radio is the new local community focused radio station that is developing for launch now, we are already producing reports and podcasts on our website and social media channels, as well as training members of the community in media, marketing, communications and radio. We plan to launch as an online station and move to local digital radio (SSDAB) or FM as soon as the opportunity comes.
We are looking for local businesses to help support us with our launch cost and enable us to provide great local radio for Bedford. This funding will help us purchase the equipment, software, licenses and other bits that we need to launch, and alongside the grants and other support we are raising will help cover our initial running costs.
We have created our Club of 10, which is open to local businesses to join and be our exclusive launch partners.
The club offers exclusivity for your sector or trade, and opportunity to give back to the community, but also receive back from us where and when we can.
We are looking for businesses to donate £500 between now and our launch this summer.
Full membership starts when the station launches fully online, and you will then receive 12 months of:
Your logo on our Club of 10 Page on the Bedford Radio Website
Web advert on rotation in the “Club of 10” spot on the website (location and size TBC)

And for those businesses that come on board and support us prior to launch we will be offering a discount on any advertising or sponsorship packages brought for the first 12 months of when we move to SSDAB.
