Friday July 2nd saw the official relaunch of Future Radio 107.8FM, and the end of transmissions on our old frequency.
At 8.30am, Terry Lee (hosting an extended 5 hour relaunch show) signalled the end of 96.9FM with a 'funeral song', which was provided by the Sex Pistols 'God Save The Queen'. As the song faded James Bensley and Station Manager Tom Buckham pulled the plug on our old transmitter, and the sounds of Primal Scream 'Moving on Up' officially launched Future Radio 107.8FM.
We've had some encouraging listener feedback so far on the new frequency, with lots of reports of improved reception - if you're now able to tune in to Future Radio (and couldn't before) - let us know where you're listening from!

Dawn Jackson, who set up Future Projects, formerly called the NR5 Project, in April 2000, has been made an MBE for services to young people in Norwich.
The organisation, which includes Norwich community radio station Future Radio, originally provided two volunteer youth workers on the streets of Earlham after reports of antisocial behaviour hit the headlines.
The charity now employs 47 people and has 5,000 registered users. It has also helped children receive life-changing full time education.
Mum of three Mrs Jackson, 46, said she was “completely stunned”.
She said: “I'm really thrilled to bits and delighted. I couldn't have done it without Sonia who I started the project with.
“I'm blessed to be surrounded by the people who work around me and who really genuinely care. They all deserve to be recognised as well.”
