Join the Medway Pride Radio community
Medway Pride Radio is a not-for-profit community radio station run by volunteers. The station was founded by Shea Coffey, Hilary Cooke & Helanna Bowler-Irvine, to support Medway Pride, the LGBTQIA+ communities and allies from across all the diverse communities of Medway & Kent.
Medway Pride Radio is based in Rochester in the heart of INTRA, where we aim to be part of the local community. We started broadcasting on 1st February 2021.
Check out our web app at www.mpradio.app once the app is loaded on your device you can save the app to your screen.
The station has a mix of DJ’s and presenters who will be providing programs that are varied and interesting.
Have a listen to our programs and give us your feedback via our social media or contact details.
Would you like to help us spin some tunes? Come and join the MPR community, everyone is welcome from complete beginners to experienced broadcasters.
You don’t need to have any previous experience as we have a support programme in place, where one of the team can talk you through how it works and what you need to get started.
At the moment, all the DJs broadcast from home, so you do need a few basics, from a good internet connection to a computer and a microphone along with a good music collection of course! We don’t have playlists to you play the music you love.
Would you like to get involved behind the scenes? We are always on the look out for volunteers to help us out with community and interest articles for our daily News show and for various other roles that keep the station running.
Volunteering can be very rewarding, it can help you gain skills in a new area and, in the current turbulent times, you can get a lot of enjoyment from a new hobby.
We are a community after all!
If you are a member, ally, supporter of the LGBTQIA+ community, are over 16 and you would like to get involved, email the team at email@example.com or get in touch through any of our social media accounts.
