RADIO MADE BY BATH

 MADE BY BATH 
 FOR BATH 

Two of Bath’s most popular radio stations are joining forces.

Bath Radio and BA1 RadioBath Radio is a radio station for the city which builds on 55 years of broadcasting experience as a hospital radio. It aims to connect Bathonians through music, events and the arts. With a dedicated and diverse group of volunteer presenters, it delivers more than 50 hours of programmes each week, from music to local news.

BA1 Radio, which trains and educates people in radio broadcasting, has been operating in Bath since 2018. The organisation has given many local people the opportunity to learn new skills and give a voice to the local community. During the pandemic they supported businesses and local charities through specialist programs and had 50 volunteers creating radio for Bath.

The stations, which have similar styles and ethos, are coming together to form a new radio station for the city to provide great listening with a strong local flavour, showcasing all that the city and it’s people have to offer. Chair of Bath Radio, Julia Ferguson says, “We are excited about this collaboration; we will be bigger, better and stronger working together to create a new sound for Bath.”

Chair of BA1 Radio, Samuel Maggs said, “We’ve worked hard over the past few years to establish a station and provide training. We’re excited to be merging with Bath Radio so we can combine knowledge and skills and offer better radio for the city!”

In the meantime, all volunteers from both stations will be broadcasting on the Bath Radio stream until the new service is set up. You can listen online at www.bathradio.org.uk or via TuneIn radio – just search for Bath Radio.

Further details of the new organisation will be announced in the New Year.
