The unique feature of CANDOFM Community Radio is that it directly involves members of the community in its management and operation to create the service.The differences of community as opposed to commercial radio is the number of contributors.

Currently there are over forty active volunteers ranging in age from ten to sixty five. Taxi drivers to retired police, students, graduates, working and unemployed. They broadcast live, pre-recorded in the studio, remotely at home or school to put together the Ofcom required programming output. Each of the volunteers are able to champion local music or sport or community issues motivated by their passions interests.

Have you wanted to give presenting a try? Do you want to present a show to match your music tastes? At CandoFM we offer two approaches to presenting to meet your needs either presenting LIVE on air or Pre-recording your show to be aired at a different time and day.

Training will be provided from our current presenters and you will be given a complete run through on how to use the studio equipment and software so that you can start to build up your show ready for going on the airwaves. You don’t need to be a pro at this most of our presenters started out with no experience and they have flourished over time as have their shows.



This role is all about the content from start to finish. It is centrally focussed on recording, mixing down and then publishing of the content. As the station is relies heavily on audio consider it the beating heart of the station.There are opportunities for volunteers to get involved doing some of their own production work at the station and we have access to a pre-record studio and editing software to support this that we can then put out to broadcast on the station. This role supports the technicians quite closely and training is given so that you can learn the systems that we use at CandoFM.
