Programming will be very similar to previous broadcasts, offering a wide range of music - pop, 60s, folk, reggae, classical, soul, country and jazz as well as interviews.

Mr Hatherly said the radio's team of volunteers continued to grow but he asked more women to join.
“For some reason women are reticent at coming forward. We are particularly pleased to welcome two new female daytime presenters, Bonnie Robertson and Susie Hancock,” he said.
“Anyone interested in being involved in any way, will be made very welcome.”
People who want to join the station do not need any media experience.
