As you know The Flash is very different to commercial radio.

First of all we really are local.

Our presenters are passionate about the music we play because it often comes from our own personal collections.

We don’t constantly interrupt your favourite shows with commercial breaks, but instead restrict commercial time to two minutes at the top of each hour.

The Flash supports the local music scene by sprinkling local acts throughout our output.

Our ‘Real Music’ policy is designed to surprise our listeners, rather than constantly rotate the same tired songs.

Everyone here are volunteers and there are no share holders, so this really is YOUR radio station.

But we can only ‘Dare to be different’ because of the support we get from listeners and our presenters. In fact The Flash would have closed in 2023 without the very kind support that came forward at that time. We will never forget that and sincerely thank you.
