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'll be celebrating what's great about local radio on Friday 26th May.

Look out for the Wessex FM OB truck, which will be travelling across the area throughout the day, where you can meet the team and maybe win £100!

We're also raising money for Rethink Mental Illness, which helps local people dealing with mental health problems - all of the money raised on the day will stay in Dorset.
