FromeFM Station manager Phil Moakes says “The Olympic torch in Frome is a once in a lifetime event and FromeFM are proud to be covering it on FM radio. We will be following the progress of the torch and talking to people in Frome who are lining the route.”
“This will be the first LIVE outside broadcast for FromeFM on the new frequency 96.6 FM and will be monitored by Ofcom. They have asked us to run a series of test transmissions for a couple of weeks so what better way to start than with the Olympic torch. Afterwards we will be broadcasting a variety of programmes until they give us the green light for our full launch onto FM on 16th June. Tune in on 96.6 from 22nd May onwards and have a listen.”
We aren’t allowed any advertising during the test transmissions so we are using this time to record new sponsor messages ready for our launch. Ofcom only allow a limited amount of advertising so local businesses should visit our website as soon as possible for details.
