Welcome! We are a local radio station situated in a UK seaside town ‘South Shields’ in South Tyneside.

We are a community interest company. This means that everything we do is for the benefit of the local communities across North and South Tyneside, with hope of launching on DAB digital radio next year!

We broadcast fulltime, showcasing details of local events, news, and activities within the area. We play the latest music from the charts, as well as music from the past 60 years.

There’s something for everyone at our station! Whether you’re a listener or wanting to get involved… we’d love to hear from you!
