Maidstone's Community Radio Station

Maidstone Radio is a community radio station that has been broadcasting to the residents of Maidstone since December 2019. If you live, work or play in Maidstone, choose us are your listening choice.  We have a wide range of shows, with over 37 presenters all bringing different skills, interest, music genres and more. We broadcast music 24hours a day, 7 days a week, and we will also bring you local news &  community information important to you

Maidstone Radio is a community radio project delivered by Kent Digital Media Group. 

The project involves the development and running of a full-time radio station with the sole purpose of serving the people, communities, charities, organisation & businesses in and around Maidstone.

In addition to running a radio station, we will also establish training programmes that will pass on transferable, employability, digital media and functional skills to our volunteers. 

Despite the challenges from Covid-19 which has meant our studio has been closed for the most part of our first year broadcasting, our incredible volunteers have continued broadcasting from their home studios. With the thanks to our volunteers on and off air, we were shortlisted for ‘Digital Station of the Year’ at The Community Radio Awards in 2020. 

We strive to continue to build on our success and continue to welcome new volunteers, providing opportunities to local people, as well as bringing music, entertainment, local community information and much more to the residents in and around Maidstone.

We would like to thank our sponsors

We are very thankful to the following organisation who have helped launch our community station, as well as help with the ongoing running costs. Without these organisations, it wouldn’t be possible to continue operating and providing opportunities to local people.

As a Community Interest Company our objectives are about building community cohesion and reinvesting monies back into the project, and therefore the community. The radio station and peripheral digital media projects will provide an outlet to create awareness, and garner change and support for community organisations. Working with its volunteers and trainees, Maidstone Radio will educate, inform and entertain the county town of Kent, Maidstone, but… we need your help! We need ongoing financial support to help continuing operating and providing opportunities to local people.
