What’s On in Tyne & Wear

Who Are We?

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, launching on DAB digital radio later this 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!

We are delighted to announce an excited new partnership between The Customs House and Radio Shields.

Launching 11am Sunday 11th April, The Customs House Hour will keep you right up to date with your favourite theatre on the banks of the Tyne. Hosted by Ray Spencer, The Customs House Hour will be packed with music, chat, Customs House news and special guests. It’s going to be fun, you really won’t want to miss it.
