105.9 Academy FM, Folkestone’s new Community Radio station!
Tune in to our vibrant mix of chart hits and classic tunes, teamed with up to the minute local news, interviews and debate. Because we’re a Community station, we don’t play adverts and we’re proud to play music made right here in Kent, every hour, every day.
Folkestone’s communities are diverse, and 105.9 Academy FM will reflect that. We’ll broadcast a range of specialist music from jazz and folk, to rock and hip hop, all with a local flavour. We’ll also broadcast shows in two foreign languages. We’re proud to be different.
Broadcasting from Folkestone Academy we are right at the heart of the community, to benefit the people of Folkestone. As a charity we rely entirely on grants and donations and support the work of other charities by promoting their message locally.
Opportunities are open to everyone, young or old, and we’re proud to offer training in radio production to anyone living in the community. We’re currently training around 30 under 18′s in the skills of radio production, teaching them a wealth of life skills, and building their self-confidence. If you want to be involved, let us know.
