In 2021, following the decision by OFCOM to grant the station additional broadcast power, RWSfm installed a new transmitter which now allows it to be heard further across West Suffolk on 103.3fm.
The station holds a Community Radio licence and is governed by Ofcom in the same way as commercial radio stations with the exception of being a not for profit organisation.
It provides a mixture of shows that has something for everyone and prides itself on being the only local radio station for Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding areas. During the day we play a mix of mainstream music ranging from the 70’s to the present day. In the evenings and at weekends we have a selection of specialist music shows, including Rock, Country and World music.
The station has a management team of five and is run entirely by a group in excess of fifty voluntary staff.
If you would like to get involved with the station, please email our Station Manager Julie MacLeod firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
