About Phonic FM
Phonic FM evolved out of a radio station set up in 2003 to support Exeter’s annual Vibraphonic Festival; Vibraphonic FM broadcast for one month each year. In 2007 a company called Exeter Community Radio Ltd was set up to bid for a full time licence from OFCOM which was granted in late Autumn of that year.
Our output is largely music, both live and recorded, focusing on those tunes and genres you won’t often hear on mainstream radio.
We support the arts (in the widest sense) in and around the Exeter area. It also seeks to publicise events as well as encouraging innovation and participation. In the five years it has been on-air Phonic has already supported a vast array of artists, events and musical styles.
We are committed to encouraging participation and are always seeking new approaches to both content and output. If you have an idea for a show that is not currently on-air please contact firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your ideas, experience and skills.
We also have a good working relationship with the Sound Gallery studio which is based near the Phonic FM studio, and allows us the facility to broadcast musicians ‘live’ or ‘as live’.
Phonic FM has recently extended its five-year license to broadcast on 106.8 FM within a five-kilometre radius of Exeter from its studios at Exeter Phoenix. This will keep the station on-air until at least 2018.
The Phonic FM website supports all aspects of the stations output. It has an up to date schedule so you can see when your favourite shows are being broadcast along with presenter and show profiles. The website also lets you know about all the important happenings within Phonic FM.
The team are always looking for help with the site and encourage potential volunteers to contact email@example.com
