Welcome to our website, the home of speech and drama radio within Sussex and Hampshire! Founded and managed by Autistic University of Chichester Media Graduate Jamie Dyer, we like to think of radio a little differently. We pride ourselves on offering a mixture of speech, drama, documentaries and arts programming. Along with imported drama and discussion shows, we try and produce as much audio content as possible. We work with volunteers including actors, writers, contributors and others, to encourage participation, confidence and creativity. In addition to our various recording sessions, we also work with schools, charities and local organisations; bringing something different to the area. We’ve worked with several well known organisations, and helped to strengthen relations in the local area. Unlike any other station in Sussex, we bring a true alternative.

We always aim to create content for our social media and this website, utilising multimedia such as video, photographs and copy. Rather than just straight presentations or phone videos, we try to think outside the box, to create engaging content. We feel that it’s a vital thing in the modern landscape, and helps to boost our visibility along with the experience of those involved. Our eventual goal is to create a regular stream of multimedia content that entertains, informs and gives opportunities to its creators.

Our Mission: 

Our main objectives are to create and provide a mixture of arts, drama and theatre, give opportunities to others and to serve Sussex and Hampshire, with a base in West Sussex. We want to establish a local creative hub that produces drama, variety shows, discussion programs and documentaries in the spirit of ‘Old Time Radio’. We believe that this will benefit actors, writers and local people through experience and exposure.

As we DO NOT have a regular studio for people to come to, we have found other ways to create content. We hold regular recording days, where people can come and create material with us. Usually in Chichester or Bognor, we invite people to come and participate in speech related programming. This can range from discussions on local culture, to panel games with a purpose. Our eventual goal is to have a studio space to work from, and continually create new and unique content.
