We are a group of like-minded people who believe that there should be more listening choice in the Borders. For far too long the area has been forgotten about and it's time that the local people were given their own community voice to be able to air their views, contribute to and enjoy what community radio has to offer.

We broadcast daily from studios in Galashiels. All our programming is produced locally by people from the Scottish Borders. We do not take programmes from any other radio station. Our present resources allow us to broadcast live from 18:00 - 22:00 hours GMT Monday to Saturday and from 15:00 - 22:00 hours GMT on a Sunday. When we are not broadcasting live (out with the hours detailed above) we use computer automation to select music, jingles and promotional trailers for our programmes to ensure that whenever you tune in you will have something local to listen to.

Given that local radio and TV services are being cut back, we felt that radio in the area should be made by people in the area for people in the area.

We are proud that our music choice ranges from the 50s to the present day and covers most genres, including Folk, Country, Pop, Oldies, Indie, Dance and Rock.
