I have some mixed news to tell you; we are upgrading the server for a better listening experience, but there will be a bit of downtime in the interim. It will be worth this short hiccup in the short term and you will have a better listening experience moving forward. The HCR App for iOS […]

There is a fantastic opportunity for budding-board-treaders aged 11-14yrs old. Harrogate Youth Theatre have some spaces available and they will go like hot cakes; be sure to get your name down! If you want to get involved then now is your chance! Those involved will learn about theatre directors, writers and specific styles of theatre. They also further […]

At the start of a new year, hopes are always high, with thoughts of new beginnings, new adventures and the promise of better things to come. But of course, it doesn’t take long to realise that things don’t just suddenly happen overnight. If we truly want to see major changes for the better in our […]

We had a do last night. It was the Harrogate Community Radio Christmas Do and shots were slammed, shows were spoken about and faces were put to voices. In the build up, invitations had been extended to the HCR Hosts to come to Major Tom’s for 8pm – Covid19 allowing. We did not want the […]

We were in Major Tom’s Social for an event of our choosing. DJ Scooby had organised an event for people who were keen on starting in the radio, but did not know where to start. There was music, pizza, craft beer, dogs and microphones. It was amazing! Scooby did himself proud, as you can tell […]
