Welcome to Radio Barnsley
From the Heart of South Yorkshire
Well we are on the march (pardon the pun!), we being the current members of YMCA Radio Barnsley.
How so, you ask! Well, a new programme has started on Monday nights at 7pm till 9pm: “Line Time Comment” to keep us in theme with “Online”.
Two aspiring new members, Jake and Spencer who have passion and drive for Barnsley Football Club, with guests to boot and high scoring listeners from around the UK! It’s in the Net! Have a listen in!
We are starting our fund raising to help get us off the ground for our AM (MW) transmitter! It’s very expensive, more so than FM broadcasting. But well worth the wait.
We are also asking for support from our listeners. You too can get involved. Have a look at our Donation page so you can offer your help to raise the funds to get us on air and feel part of the team! Yes, every bit does help!
YMCA Radio Barnsley is a voluntary organisation and supports people (no matter who) to gain something more out of life! Like giving opportunity and skills. Our funding comes from our members support and efforts in raising our “On Line” costs but to go on air to the whole of Barnsley and On Line: costs more than we can meet. So your help in becoming a member/supporter is paramount.
We are still seeking new presenters, no experience needed! Our training takes you through what you need to know. This takes about three months on a one evening attendance for two hours. There is a cost involved, membership to the YMCA and then to Radio Barnsley. All monies are used to keep the service going, the YMCA and Radio Barnsley.
Contact us via e-mail or call our friendly answer phone, BUT, say your number slowly! We miss so many because it can’t be slowed down to hear it properly!
Our aim is to be going on air on AM (Medium Wave) to Barnsley in February 2016. It’s a long way off, but the amount of work that has to be done just to get an Ariel up is a daunting task!
Stick with us, listen in, there’s not always a presenter on air but the music covers all tastes, there’s something for everyone!
Radio Barnsley, on line all the time, playing great music! From the Heart of South Yorkshire!
