Multi FM

DJ ACERONE - MULTI FM 87.7fm, Thurs 24th Feb, 5pm - 6pm

Multi FM is being broadcast again from it's Kingswood base - The Old School Youth Centre, from Mon-Fri next week. Unless you live at the bottom of a hill, it should reach most parts of Bristol so be sure to tune in - especially between 5-6 on Thurs 24th Feb, when i'll be playing you some choice cuts from my treasured vinyl collection.

Work rota's willing, ill be joined by a very special guest MC who will guide you through an hour of my biggest musical influences as i drop some dodgy scratches, off beat mixes and careless whispers.

Due to the nature of the work i do, i have a huge appreciation for youth centre's and the opportunities they provide for young people within communities. The Kingswood Old School YC is an outstanding project - and with a name like that, it really couldn't be anything less.
Dont forget to tune in!


Multi FM - 87.7 FM
12noon-10pm, 21st-25th February, Old School youth centre, Kingswood

Young people in Kingswood will be making waves on the radio during the half-term break, broadcasting again as ‘Multi FM’ on 87.7 FM.
The young people will be hosting a mixture of interviews, live music and songs.

This is the fourth year that the young people, aged from 14 to 20-years-old, have run a radio station from the Kingswood-based youth centre.

After being granted a licence by Ofcom, they have been hard at work preparing for the week-long broadcast with help and guidance from Phil Gibbons, the station manager at Bristol Community Radio, and Matt Thomas, a sound engineer.

The youngsters will be interviewing a range of guests, including representatives from the police, councils and the health service, and other organisations.

Councillor Sheila Cook, executive member for children and young people, praised the efforts of the youngsters. She said: “I think Multi FM is a fantastic project. It enables a group of young people to come together and create something they can be proud of, as well as learning new skills.

“It has been really well received in previous years and everyone involved has been working hard to make it a success again.”

Old School youth worker June Yeoman said: “It’s going to be a really exciting week. A few the regulars have left, but we have some new and exciting members of the team.”
