Celebrating #ProperLocalRadio

lrd header 768

Wessex FM is proud to be part of the local community in Dorset.


We believe in delivering proper local radio for the people who live, work, and go to school here, and that's why we are part of the second annual Local Radio Day.

Along with almost a hundred stations across the UK, we celebrated what's great about local radio on Friday 26th May.
