In May 2010 the concept of developing a non profit-making radio station broadcasting a positive format began to evolve in our thinking. Looking around at the vast number of internet stations we realised that distinctiveness is the name of the game in attracting and keeping listeners, and so we began to formulate a plan which would satisfy this.
Over the months we have researched our requirements, purchased equipment, software, media, licencing and bandwidth, and slowly put together a schedule which will put us in a significant niche in the market.
A number of contributors have also been recruited to bring this plan to fruition. Our launch was 31st January, 2011, test broadcasts started on 10th January 2011. Since then listening numbers and hours have increased consistently, new shows and presenters have been added and we can regularly be heard in over 40 countries.
These are just a sample, there are so many more shows at www.upliftfm.com.
