Harrogate Community Radio is a grass-roots movement to give people in the local community a voice. To give everyone who feels under-represented a voice for change. The original ethos behind the Harrogate Community Radio movement is to unite the separate music scenes in Harrogate and bring about an umbrella for local producers, musicians, hosts and talent.
We feel there is a lack of opportunity in the local area for local grass-roots acts to get a foot hold – this is, where I hope we will come in; acting as a springboard to future, greater careers. We are a local media outlet led by the local community. A democratic outlet for local groups and bodies to have a voice.
We aim to –
- Bring disparate groups together.
- Be a launchpad to future excellence in media for our volunteers.
- We aim for “Community Cohesion.”
- We aim to offer skills development for budding podcasters and radio show hosts.
- We do not want to work with “specific groups” – we want to work with everyone.
Harrogate Community Radio is an idea that a town can be united through music. There are many different scenes in Harrogate, North Yorkshire – and, we are the richer for it – but is there anywhere where people can unite and feel part of something greater? We hope that Harrogate Community Radio will be that place.
Harrogate Community Radio is an inclusive broadcast platform for Harrogate & District. We showcase all that is good from the Harrogate area. We are community orientated and we are community driven. Broadcasting solely online, we are up and running from the start of August 2019. All you will need is an Internet connection to tune in.
Running from Creao Studio, Regent Street in Harrogate – we are looking for Broadcasters. If you think you have the level of commitment needed to broadcast once a week or one a fortnight (or even once a month) then please see the Open Call for Broadcasters in the menu on this site. We would love to hear from you.
