Ballina Community Radio granted another 100-day License

BCR 101.9FM is back on the dial to liven up your weekends.

BCRFM’s latest license will run until the final weekend of October 2022. This will once again allow the station to broadcast on Saturdays and Sundays from 9.30 am till 11 pm on 101.9 FM, throughout Ballina and its surrounding areas. The station will also continue to broadcast all shows online at www.bcrfm.ie and on smart speaker.

The station would like to acknowledge the continued support of local businesses in their sponsorship of show programming. Without the option to fundraise due to Covid-19 the overheads arising from running the station are been covered by sponsorship alone.  The financial support from sponsors has allowed BCRFM to sustain a strong and vibrant community radio station broadcasting locally in Ballina and to its diaspora across the world.

BCRFM is proud to announce four new additional presenters each bringing their own unique style and talent to the airwaves, adding a new language show, music show, and entertainment show to their schedule.  The new weekend schedule also offers a mix of music shows including country, rock, soul, folk and blues, west of Ireland artists, classical plus all your favourites.

BCR101.9fm is a non-profit station that is volunteer-led. BCRFM is continuing its partnership with Mayo Northeast and its Tús initiative providing short-term working opportunities.  The station continues to use its platform as a radio station to promote #shoplocal and #supportlocal.
