Drive 105 FM Community Radio Ltd : Your Voice, Your Community, Your Station Keeping the Community Connected

A locally based, not-for-profit, cross- community radio station serving the Derry~Londonderry area, Drive 105 FM has over 15,000 listeners and has proved to be an integral part of the community with trained volunteers operating 24:7 to provide a valuable service – offering entertainment, information, a forum for debate, and a platform for local musicians / songwriters and other artists disadvantaged by the pandemic.  Usually reliant on revenue from local advertising, which has not been so prevalent during the pandemic, Drive 105 applied for funding towards a new mixing desk to ensure that their volunteers and training programmes use the latest, most up-to-date technology in this ever-advancing field.  The Committee awarded a grant of £1,325 to cover the cost of an Allen & Heath GU16 Digital Mixing Desk.
