"Our team includes journalists, presenters, TV continuity announcers, business people and former managers from UK Radio"
The team behind Red Kite Radio was also behind Summerfest Radio – the short term broadcast to promote the summer Haddenham Beer Festival.
Summerfest Radio successfully promoted the Summerfest event at Haddenham Community Junior School for four years from 2013-2016. From a portacabin kindly provided by the Haddenham Garden Centre, we were able to bring hyper-local radio to this area for the first time. Such was the success of Summerfest Radio, in 2015 the team of volunteer radio professionals decided the area could support a full-time station which won’t disappear off the air after two weeks each summer.
Red Kite Radio is brought to you by a team who all have backgrounds in UK commercial radio, including stations in Bucks and Oxon, plus the forces broadcaster BFBS. Our team includes journalists, presenters, TV continuity announcers, business people and former managers from UK Radio.
Not for profit radio
Red Kite Radio is a not for profit radio station run for our community by a team of volunteers and a station manager who will oversee the day-to-day output, co-ordinate news content, present programmes, look after our client supporters and our team of helpers and volunteers. Despite being not for profit, Red Kite Radio will not sound amateur, our aim is to give Thame and Haddenham a polished radio station which features people and voices from our community - while informing and entertaining. In the evening local people will be given the opportunity to present specialist programmes bringing a whole range of musical genres to the airwaves.
