Beyond Radio is the only local FM radio station broadcasting for North Lancashire, from North Lancashire.
They cover an area that stretches from Garstang through Lancaster, Morecambe, Carnforth and a little beyond. Our studios are located in the Scotforth-Bowerham area of Lancaster. Since their full-time launch in 2016 they are proud to have established themselves as a recognised community resource. They broadcast a range of music and programming targeted specifically to our audience in North Lancashire.
Beyond Radio launched in 2016 after successfully being awarded a community radio license by Ofcom during the 2014 community radio application cycle. They were founded in 2012 by several individuals who each held an interest in radio, the Local Community, and held many years experience in the community radio sector. They initially launched to broadcast to the communities of Lancaster and Morecambe on 103.5FM as well as online and via our dedicated mobile/tablet apps.
In September 2020 they launched an additional frequency (107.5FM) to extend their coverage to the most northern tip of Lancashire and in particular, the population of Carnforth. Whilst not its target area of focus (or counted in its potential audience numbers – known as a TSA), their FM broadcast can now be heard as far south as Blackpool and as far north as South Cumbria.
Beyond Radio, as a community-led and community serving resource is an ideal platform through which to celebrate the area’s broad diverse and cultural mix.
All this underpinned, of course, by a great music service that celebrates the best of today’s sounds, offer great tracks from the past, delivering specialist shows and introducing you to music you may never have heard of before.
