Off air

The station that just faded awayIt’s not just the analogue television signal that disappeared from areas of Swindon yesterday. The forlorn radio station, Brunel FM also passed away. Since yesterday it’s programming has been suspended, replaced by it’s emergency recording repeating hour after hour: the recording’s strapline sadly ironic.

Brunel FM, home of the no repeat weekday.

For over a year there have been repeated rumours of unpaid wages and the station’s owners have struggled in-and-out of administration. The new owners hope to have the station up-and-running again — tho’ in reduced form — next week.
