For. nearly two years I have been trying to get agencies and organisations to be more innovative in Gloucester and help develop a community radio station. Instead most of them chose to stay in the comfortable circle of community groups they think the community need.
Our neighbours Cinderford, which is smaller than Gloucester have had their own community radio station. Gloucester is much larger than Cinderford and should in my opinion be at the forefront of new community radio development.
Unfortunately I found out it’s not what you know, but who you know. If we as a city are to move forward into the 21st century we must embrace and support new ideas that will improve all our lives.
Local people ran Gloucester FM community radio station, with the emphasis on local issues, information, advice and music reflecting our multi cultural community.
