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.
