Harbour Radio is a “NOT FOR PROFIT” Community Radio Station based in the town centre and their aim is to encourage social gain within the Great Yarmouth area. In addition to entertaining and informing, their intention is to reflect the interests and needs of their audience.
To that end diversity, cultural programming and a blend of local interest talk and music – much of the latter directly requested by our listenership – is all very much a part of the plan. As a community radio station and 100% voluntary project our aim is not to “talk at” the listener but to create direct links with our listeners
thereby becoming an integral part of the local community. Finally, as a social enterprise, part of their remit is also to offer training and support to local people interested in acquiring new skills and the knowledge associated with the setup and future running of a radio station.
Feedback from their first Restricted Service Licence (RSL) broadcast in January 2014, less than three months after the very first Skamouth, showed that listeners appreciate the unique nature of the service, our local content and presenters (and their individual, occasionally quirky, personalities!), the banter between presenters, the wide – unpredictable – variety of music and the fact that we are approachable and not commercially playlist driven.
