About Our Station

Right, second time around …

We started broadcasting on mid-summer’s day 2012 and it continued until mid-summer’s day 2013 – then the money stopped … so the station stopped.

However, we now have sponsorship, through Allan Smyth Audio Visual, and the station is back up and running as of mid-winter’s day 2014 – expect a more relaxed air this time around. We started of as a station that specialised in noise (avant-garde musical genre) but have progressed into a less challenging field. Expect EDM delights alongside Hardcore and Folk and all in between.

Essentially, we are a group of like minded people that just want to make Harrogate, North Yorkshire, a better place culturally and aurally.
