Marlow FM is celebrating 10 years of broadcasting today – Tuesday 11th May, and to celebrate they are presenting 12 hours of special shows live from The Causeway in Marlow.
Marlow’s Tim Ashburner conceived the idea for a Marlow radio station back in 2006. After short test broadcasts in 2007 and 2009, from a church hall and a pub, Ofcom granted Marlow FM a full-time community radio licence. The station went on air from its studios at Longridge, Quarry Wood Road, Marlow at midday on Wednesday May the 11th 2011.
Tim Ashburner told MyMarlow “It’s fantastic that after 10 years Marlow FM has become such an integral party Marlow‘s life and culture. We may be one of the smallest in the country but we do so much and it’s a testament to our presenters and supporters that we are here – 10 years on – stronger than ever.”
Graham Duthie (in our photo) is the current Managing Director, and he told us “Our Marlow FM family is so proud of what we’ve achieved, and the service we’ve given to our wonderful town. We look forward to the next 10 years!”
MyMarlow popped down to wish them well, and grab some photos – and somehow landed up being interviewed by Abi Morris during The Eclectic Light Show!
Well done to Marlow FM team past and present for making the station what it is today – a central part of our community 🙂
