The Waterlooville area is going to have its own spot on the FM dial from Saturday, as The Flash radio station launches a community radio service from a transmitter located high in the town centre. The Flash, which celebrates the talents of local bands and the live music scene, originally came on air as an internet station back in 2012, and then launched a DAB service to the Portsmouth area in 2015.
The Flash would like to thank all our listeners and supporters through what’s been a challenging yet rewarding year. With the coming of our award of FM licencing in the summer its been a real pleasure to be broadcasting from Waterlooville on 104.3FM . We haven’t forgotten our Local DAB+ listeners and our worldwide streaming collective from around the world either, without you we are nothing.
We would like to wish you a Happy new year and can’t wait to give you more of that REAL MUSIC in 2020
I would like to say a huge thank you to Jacqui Benham, Community Champion at Asda Waterlooville for visiting today and presenting us with a cheque for £300.00 as top up funding following our Flashfest back in July.
Jacqui also came on air for a chat after the presentation pic was taken.
Thank you again Jacqui and The Asda Foundation. This money will go towards the running costs of our not for profit community radio station; The Flash – Where Real Music LIVEs.

Bringing the summery sounds of Summer to what is usually a dull month. This is a departure from our usual Genre of music and is already proving very popular with tickets flying out the door and it will probably sell out very soon.
Thanks to your very generous support and kind donations we not only achieved our goal but passed it by £889.27p. Thank you so much for all the support you have given. We are now broadcasting on 104.3FM and we could not have achieved it without you. Every penny will go towards paying off the remaining invoices for the installation and added overheads for the FM service during the first month or so. Now the search is on for local advertisers to help pay our FM costs from this point forward.
