Cowes Radio has been running as an independent radio station for some 35 years here at Cowes Week, entertaining and informing about all that happens on the water and ashore. Now we need help from you our loyal listeners to keep going through this year and beyond. The rising running costs and high licensing fees and the current economic climate place the future of Cowes Radio in jeopardy.
Enthusiasts tune in online from all around the World (we re-run each day exactly 12 hours later so our Antipodean listeners and those in the Americas can tune in at a reasonable time), as well as on The Green in Cowes and 87.7fm on radios around the wide Solent area.
We are an independent station, only able to bring the award-winning coverage by support from advertisers and sponsors. These are becoming incredibly hard to find, and we have to pay the ever increasing fees for licensing all the aspects of our broadcasts.
