North Manchester FM 106.6 is celebrating our 10 year anniversary and we are at an exciting turning point in our story with our aim to move to a new radio studio.
This move will transform the station embedding North Manchester FM 106.6 into the city's digital media community. Local people will have the opportunity to network and engage with creative people from across the region building a bigger and better radio station for the next ten years and beyond.
We have over 35 passionate volunteers who produce over 70 hours of unique and innovative local content each week broadcasting on FM (reaching over 30,000 people) and digitally (reaching thousands more across the world) promoting our local community and encouraging residents to get involved.
We have changed people's lives by giving them a voice and an opportunity to share their stories on air and online increasing confidence and wellbeing.
We have supported adults and young people through work experience, internships and education in partnership with local schools and colleges leading to employment and volunteering.
Over the last ten years we have supported hundreds of community groups and local businesses, given first airplay to thousands of new and upcoming musicians and artists and promoted thousands of arts events, theatre performances and festivals.
We are embedded in the North Manchester community and work closely with a wide variety of local organisations to celebrate our area.
This campaign is to raise funds to support us for the first year in our new state of the art studio in north Manchester covering rent, installation, licenses, moving and station running costs (e.g. licenses/ tech support) for the first year.
Through your support we can do all this and even more creating a sustainable radio station for the future.
