What is community radio?
Ofcom, the regulator for the UK communications industry, defines community radio stations as ‘small-scale, not-for-profit radio stations operated for the good of members of the public, or of particular communities, and in order to deliver social gain.’
Is Cambridge 105 Radio a registered charity?
Cambridge 105 Radio is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation, registered as a “Limited by Guarantee” company. Whilst we are not a registered charity, we operate with charitable aims and are recognised as doing so by the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation. (www.localgiving.com/cambridge105)
How do I get involved/ how do I join/ how do I get my own show?
If you are interested in producing your own show, joining an existing show, or getting involved in any other area of the station from studio maintenance to marketing, please email: email@example.com. It is also worth coming along to talk to us at any of our open days, or broadcasting events within the community. You can find out more at cambridge105.co.uk/volunteer
Do I need previous radio experience to get involved?
No previous radio experience is necessary. Most volunteers can turn a hand to most tasks, but that’s not to say we’ll turn away experienced broadcasters, we have people who once worked at the BBC, Sky News and commercial radio. And when you need a helping hand we can offer training.
We offer work experience to a limited number of students every year, but many find it useful to spend time with us every week, rather than just for a limited period.
How much does it cost to join Cambridge 105 Radio?
It’s free. However, we suggest a monthly donation of £10 for individual volunteers, £180 per annum for voluntary groups. We prefer monthly payment via Direct Debit. Please see www.cambridge105.co.uk/volunteer for further information.
What does my donation go towards?
Running Cambridge 105 Radio costs money (unfortunately!) – somewhere in the region of £1,500 per month in rent, utilities, licence fees and royalties. Your money helps make this amount achievable.
If you have feedback or complaints about Cambridge 105 Radio and its output, please send a message to our station manager Tim Willett. Should you have a specific complaint please read our Listener Complaints Policy.
