It was 8 years ago today East Coast FM started as an Internet Music Provider, like them all talking to ourselves and half a dozen facebook pals! We decided to fund an RSL so we went on a 4 week Restricted license which allowed us to call ourself a RADIO STATION on FM albeit for 4 weeks then back to the internet. We did the same the following year. An RSL License was the way to go and the journey has brought us to a 9 times award Winning Station with Community Radio Awards no other In Scotland has achieved. Add to that the BIG one The Princess Royal Training Award 2017, NO other radio Station of any kind, BBC included has achieved, all of which we would never have got without the fantastic support of the Community and mainly our listeners.
So Happy Birthday Us and THANK YOU, we hope we can continue to serve our Community and YOU in the future
