This Easter every radio in Peterborough can tune in to a new radio station broadcasting right here from the city.

Peterborough Community Radio – PCRFM – will go live on FM airwaves from Good Friday, April 14 from studios at the Herlington Centre.

PCR_LOGO-(FM)The PCR team, which was created from the merger between online stations Peterborough FM and Radio Peterborough, has been working hard behind the scenes to make the switch from the web and get all the technical specifications and equipment compliant to FM regulations.

“It’s exciting times,” said Acting Station Manager Steve Durham, “The schedule promises to have something for everyone. We’ve been keeping it under wraps for months but can’t wait to unleash our diverse mix of shows onto the city’s airwaves!

“This will really be the local station Peterborough has been crying out for,” he added, “great music will sit right next to community news and local interest stories brought to you by great local presenters who’ll showcase everything the city has to offer  – we strongly believe this is the station the people of Peterborough will want to tune into. We hope it will become the town square of the digital age for Peterborough residents.”

The station will broadcast on 103.2FM from noon on Good Friday, April 14.

Test transmissions can currently be heard on this frequency.
