RADIO Tamworth celebrates one year of broadcasting this weekend.

Tamworth’s dedicated radio station launched on 1st December 2017 and will celebrate this Saturday with a special show live from Namco Funscape.

Radio Tamworth’s managing editor, Alex Farrell, said: “It’s incredible to think that just twelve months ago a team of enthusiastic volunteers came together to help launch Radio Tamworth – I can’t believe where the time has gone!

“We are now played all over the town, we have around 30 local people presenting over 100 hours of live shows from right here in Tamworth, as well as the support of several local businesses.

“We have specialist music shows, a business show, a book club, live commentary from Tamworth Football Club every week and local news every day; we are really are Tamworth’s one-stop-shop for local radio.
