About us

Published June 01, 2017

We are your new community radio station in Thame, Haddenham and the surrounding villages...

Based in the grounds of Haddenham Garden Centre, we've been on air since June 2017. A not-for-profit organisation, our remit is to serve the community with Classic Hits from the 60’s to today, News and Information. We are funded by Advertising and Sponsorship.

We started out as a team of friends from Haddenham and Thame who all had worked in commercial radio with an idea of creating a pop up radio station for 2 weeks per year to celebrate the Haddenham Beer Festival. So ‘Summerfest Radio’ was born. We did it 4 years in a row with a lot of support from the community to go for a full time community radio licence and widen our reach to focus on Thame, Haddenham and the surrounding villages. We have a number of local presenters. The team is a mix of young and old from all areas, with a vast repertoire of music knowledge and preferences. We’re always keen to build the team so anyone can come in and give it a go after completing our training. We train the presenters in the studio to operate the desk and control the playlist system.

Red Kite Radio & Media Ltd is very proud to be a part of the community radio network. There are over 600 community stations in the UK and you can see our Ofcom Entry for Red Kite Radio. We have a fairly unique coverage area which you can see by downloading a map by clicking here.

    I'm interested in hearing more about volunteering for Red Kite Radio. I have time to offer, and would love to find out more about all areas of radio production/promotion. I fluffed an interview at the BBC early in my career and got side-tracked into publishing, but at least I've got good communication skills. I'm told I have a nice voice. That might come in useful?
