Bedford Radio started as an idea in the summer of 2018 and since then we have produced regular podcasts and interview content for our website, released short audio pieces on our social media, run free training courses and most recently launched a media youth club.
During that time we’ve been speaking to community groups, local businesses and people who live and work in Bedford about what they want from a local community-focused radio station, and we’ve also been applying for grants and funding for our launch.
We recently secured a large funding pledge that covers most of our launch costs, and we just need to raise a little more to get us over the line and thats why we have launched a crowdfunder to encourage the people of Bedford to get behind the station and help us get going.
Any small amount can help and we even have pledge rewards of pens, window stickers, and mugs as well!
Should achieve our funding goals at the end of September, and then we look to start training up those who want to be involved with the station hope to launch after that. If you’re interested in getting involved with the station fill out this form: http://bit.ly/JoinBedfordRadio
