BTW, regular readers will know that I have been involved with Resonance in one way or another for a long time, initially (in the project’s earliest days) when I worked at Arts Council England, and most recently, chairing the board from 2010–18. If you don’t yet know about what New York’s The Village Voice called ‘the best radio station in the world’, here’s a catch-up:
Resonance is a trail-blazing, not-for-profit radio station dedicated to creativity, arts and culture. Launched in 2002, our award-winning programming gives voice to the vibrant diversity of London’s thriving arts and music scenes. Resonance’s pool of creatives speak directly and expressively to an engaged and passionate audience, locally, nationally and internationally.
Our 24/7 broadcast service combines Resonance FM’s signal in the City with DAB digital radio coverage across Greater London. And our experimental platform, Resonance EXTRA, features on DAB in Brighton & Hove, Bristol, Cambridge, London and Norwich. Live streaming of both stations adds to the impact of our cultural broadcasts and radio artworks.
Resonance celebrates its seventeenth anniversary in 2019. We now want to consolidate, refine and grow our work. This year we need urgently to relocate our studios and broadcasting gear (the site is being redeveloped) – at considerable cost.
