Brooklands Radio can be heard on the internet every day with all the best in local features, news and music for north Surrey. Although we are an internet-only service at the moment, we have completed three periods of licensed FM broadcasts.
Brooklands Radio is dedicated to providing an accessible community radio service for the towns of Addlestone, Ashford, Byfleet, Chertsey, Cobham, Esher, Hersham, Molesey, New Haw, Shepperton, Staines, Sunbury, Walton-on-Thames, West Byfleet, Weybridge and Woking, in north Surrey. The area is not covered by local independent stations and is on the outer fringes for large London stations.
The station provides a distinctive, eclectic alternative in both words and music and is committed to giving local communities a voice, to providing education and training for schools, colleges, and other bodies, supporting local voluntary organisations, and helping small local businesses offer the best possible services locally.
What is Brooklands Radio?
Brooklands Radio is built around music from the last 40 or so years, with local news, features, sport and advertising for local firms. Behind the station is a small team of professionals with backgrounds in radio and other media. To find out more watch our YouTube videos below.
Alan Timbrell, who is heading the station, says: 'It's an exciting venture because we're a radio station aimed just at our local area. During our three FM broadcast periods many people from local organisations and voluntary groups or just with something interesting to talk about were interviewed on-air. Many local people presented their own programmes. Local businesses were able to target radio advertising directly at potential customers in their catchment area at affordable rates.
