It's been an interesting, amazing, sad and joyous two years but we're still here. It's happy second birthday to us today. Our first offiicial broadcast was on Sunday 18th June 2017. It took a lot of hard work, long hours of planning and preparation, lots of form filling, meetings and fund raising, but we made it.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our Sponsors and Advertisers past and present, our supporters and of course our volunteers who work tirelessly to give their time and expertise to keep Red Kite Radio on the air, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Thank you one and all, happy birthday and here's to the next year.

A team of volunteers and youngsters, who are learning skills in construction, have been busy renovating a building in Haddenham in preparation for the launch of Red Kite Radio.

Thanks to recent grants awards from the AVDC Community Chest and Rothschild Foundation, the building at the Haddenham Garden Centre will soon come to life. It will be home to a full broadcast studio, audio playout system and radio training facility.

Work on the existing building was carried out by Toolshed, a Bucks based social enterprise that gives young people the personal and practical skills to build a career in the construction industry. They do this through an education programme which combines the teaching of carpentry, plumbing, painting and decorating, alongside life skills. The 16-24 year olds work at a variety of locations across the area through Toolshed’s handy person service.

Red Kite Radio volunteers are currently working on wiring the building and preparing the equipment for installation at the new studio hub.

Once live, the studio will be an open facility where you can pop-in, meet the team, take part in programmes and play a big part in your new radio station - Red Kite Radio.

Ofcom, the Government regulator has now allocated an FM frequency to Red Kite Radio. 107.2FM will be the new home of the first dedicated radio station for Haddenham, Thame and the surrounding villages. Mark Chapple, said at the time, “We’re over the moon with this allocation. This is at the top of the dial which makes us easy to find and because it’s away from larger broadcasters it means we’ll have a nice clear sound with no interference.”

Red Kite Radio was awarded a full-time community radio licence by Ofcom earlier this year. The station came about thanks to the Summerfest Radio broadcasts in support of and funded by the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust. “We’ve still got lots of work ahead of us before our launch in the Spring, including moving into our permanent home at the Haddenham Garden Centre, building the studio, installing the transmission kit and of course building a music library, albeit a digital one.” “We’ll be adding more information to our growing website in the coming weeks and some sneaky pics of our set up as it comes together over the next six months.”

Red Kite Radio is a not for profit organisation and run for the benefit of the community. It will be funded through grants and the selling of advertising packages to local business of all sizes. Cost effective packages will open up the prospect of radio advertising to small traders, trades men & women and larger businesses alike. Companies and organisations will be able to benefit from radio advertising at a low price and in return know they’re supporting this great new community initiative.
