“The directors of Frome FM wish to express their condolences to His Royal Highness King Charles and the Royal Family on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Many of the programmes you will hear on the station were recorded before the Queen’s passing and will not reflect the events of the last few days.
As a volunteer organisation, we don’t have the human resources to reschedule the station’s output as the professional broadcasters have done, so we hope that our listeners will respect our decision to continue broadcasting our regular schedule of live and repeated programmes.
Julian Crawley, Rupert Kirkham and Suzi Sims

Message from Christopher Curtis:
“We are delighted to support the Cheese and Grain events for Ukraine at the end of this month and hope we can help in any way possible. Musicians who give their time for free are welcome to take home a complimentary set of Prometheus for their family and friends. The Team at Prometheus stand side by side with children and their families in Ukraine.
If any businesses in Frome wish to sponsor additional sets of Prometheus being sent to Ukraine children in Poland they are welcome to contact me on 07841 840501.”
