Local Radio Day

Local Radio Day returns on Friday 26th May.

Spire FM will be joining other proper local radio stations across the UK to celebrate!

As well as all the usual things we do 365 days a year (play great songs; the latest local news; travel and weather), there‚Äôll be extra chances to win and we'll be taking the radio station out on the road and into the local community. 

Martin and Hen will be broadcasting the breakfast show from Amesbury Primary School, Chris Wright could be making YOU our next big winner as we give away cash with Lunchtime Lottery in Salisbury.

Plus Pat and Faye will be live from a listeners house in Winterslow as we celebrate #properlocalradio.

Why Are We Doing This?

Local Radio Day will celebrate the impact that proper local radio has on the communities it serves. Spire FM is proud to have been broadcasting to South Wiltshire and West Hampshire for over 20 years from studios at City Hall, Salisbury.  

Other radio companies don't believe local radio is important but we do! We believe when it is done properly it can help change the lives of listeners and make a real and lasting impact on the area that it serves.

Local Radio Day celebrates the partnership that exists between radio stations and their listeners and sets out to demonstrate the difference that being local really makes.
