Have your say

Listeners are being invited to have their say about Wetherby’s community radio station.

Tempo FM has been on the air since September 2006 and the not for profit outfit is to hold a public meeting for people to voice their opinions on the service.

Stuart Robinson Programme Controller at Tempo FM said: “We have been broadcasting to our listeners in Wetherby and the surrounding villages for over eight years now from the heart of Wetherby.

“The many volunteers at the radio station and myself are very keen to meet with the public at this public event to hear their views about our programme output and the music we play.

“It is so important that we engage with the public because after all we are committed to providing a first-class service for our local listeners.”

Tempo FM started life in a broom cupboard at the Engine Shed but after that closed it moved to a new suite at the One Stop building where it still broadcasts from.

Stuart added that the station is licensed and regulated by Ofcom and run entirely by volunteers.

But the drive is on to further the station’s popularity.

They are asking if people like what they hear, want to know what people don’t like about the station, if there is something they wish would be covered or would like to volunteer.

The public meeting will take place on Saturday October 25, starting at 10.30am at Wetherby Cinema in Caxton Street.

Stuart added: “Please come and let us know your views about your radio station.”
