For those of you not familiar, Orkney is a group of islands off of the North coast of Scotland. It has a population of just over 20,000 people and a great community radio station called The Super Station.
Local and community radio is something that is very dear to my heart. My career behind the microphone began on hospital radio, and it was the sense of community that made the listener feel that the station was for them on some personal level. More and more commercial radio is heading towards being networked and nationalised, and the common belief is that these stations do all start to sound the same.
That’s why local radio is so important, so please do support yours and tune in – you may well be pleasantly surprised.
