“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.
