Radio Buckie aims to connect to a brighter 2022
BUCKIE Community Radio Station hopes to attract new faces and donations as 2022 dawns.
The pandemic has made life difficult at Radio Buckie, which is run by volunteers, but they are nonetheless looking forward to the next 12 months.
Station Chairman Dr Nick Brown said: “Since launch, Radio Buckie has been based at Buckie Community High School, but access has been restricted during the pandemic so we have had to continue purely on outreach and home recordings.
“Throughout this time, we have focused on personal ‘playlists for life’ and programs to support people with dementia, but as we approach 2022, we plan to do even more close work with
portable devices obtained thanks to the Moray Beatrice fund. We also intend to start a branch at the Cullen Community Center and with the arrival of a few new administrators since the start of the pandemic, we feel positive and hopeful for the times ahead.
“That said, we are always in need of funds, volunteers and program ideas, so anything you (or someone you know) can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Especially if you would like to donate essential and welcome to Radio Buckie, so please contact us at our [email protected] email address where we can advise you on the best way to proceed.”
Radio Buckie was launched in 2015 and since then has continued to produce a range of programs relating to lectures and reviews, music, film, poetry, performance, history, events, to businesses, voluntary groups, charities, showcasing individual talents and promoting what is
on in the region.
In doing so, Radio Buckie relied entirely on unpaid local enthusiasts of all ages and diversity, who involved dozens of people in the local community to produce the wide range of recordings now deposited on the website. current, available at www.radiobuckie.co.uk
A number of roles are offered at the station, both behind the mic and in other capacities.
