On Friday 8th September 2017 6 Towns Radio will be 7 years old.
Our first full day on air was on 8th September 2010, but that wasn’t when it all started. It took months of planning and hard work to get us on air. Before we could go on air we had to get a studio setup, a full lineup of presenters ready. Here is a quick look at our history.
