As we approached the tail end of the queue my son said let’s turn on the radio and listen to local travel to find out what is happening – I went on to explain to him about the radio station Heart and that I thought they were based in Exeter and this road issue would probably not get mentioned as they have to cover the whole of Devon’s roads which is a pretty large area!
His reply was to keep flicking through the radio stations saying
“There must be a local station that just covers North Devon?” He went on to say “Why is no one doing anything about this?”
“Ah ha” I said “there is”
I went on to explain to him about The Voice and that they are trying to bring local community radio back to North Devon. But it does not come cheap and it costs money to deliver this service to the local community that’s why it needs as many advertisers and donators as possible to keep it going – then you can turn on the radio and find out about your local roads, local events and local communities!
Well done The Voice – another supporter gained who has said he will spread the word at School for everyone to tune in on 16th March to 12th April on 107.1FM to listen to genuine local radio!
