ALMOST ACOUSTIC SHOW RETURNS
It's back!!! After an absence of almost two years, the extremely popular Almost Acoustic Show is back, with a new presenter in Cressida Ford.
Our thanks to Ricky Clarke for trailblazing the show and our regrets that his temporary absence turned out to be much longer than anticipated. We sincerely hope to see him back, one of these days.
Meanwhile you can tune in to hear Cressida's show on Mondays at 8pm.

FM LICENCE APPLICATION
Our application for a community FM licence has been submitted. Over the last six years, Radio Scarborough has grown from a tiny acorn, into a genuine, dedicated community station, that features a broad range of programmes, with hopefully, something for everybody and a workforce of over forty volunteers. The station is supported by business sponsors and partners, together with many community and charitable organisations.
Last Summer, we were visited by Dom Chambers of the Community Media Association, who sang our praises in his monthly podcast, which is widely listened to by those in the radio industry. He was especially complimentary about our youth project, so well done The Radio Scarborough Youth Team ( the oldest is 12, so they're not on here lol)
Getting an FM licence is the next step in growing the mighty oak that can provide our borough with the platform it deserves, to link, promote and serve this area and its diverse community.
