NE1fm 102.5 turned 6 years old on June 8th, meaning we’ve been broadcasting to the community of Newcastle and Gateshead for over 6 years and hopefully many more to come.
We had a fun packed day of celebrations from 10am with Kev Atkinson, Dan Pye at 12pm, Rob Pears at 2pm, Compton at 7pm-9pm and then a special show with parting station management, Kev Atkinson who ended the day with a special broadcast from 9pm till midnight.
Here’s some pictures from events/community related topics we’ve covered over the years so far:
We have brought our Open Access Programming to live outside events.
We also broadcast from Community Centres for example live from Fawdon Community Centre in 2008.
