Have You Tuned in to the Local Radio Station for Erewash?

Do you know that Erewash Sound is the radio station JUST for Erewash and if you’ve not yet tuned in you really ought to give it a try!

Launched in late 2004 by a team of experienced volunteers, their daytime output consists of ‘favourites of today and yesterday’ from the 1950s to the present, local news and information, interviews, hourly national, international and local news, weather, travel. sport, competitions and chat, all delivered by a team of warm and friendly presenters.  Night-time sees a diverse range of specialist music programming.

Erewash Sound launched in its present form on 96.8FM on Saturday 6th March at 9:00am from studios at the then Bennerley Business & Enterprise College in Cotmanhay (now the Ormiston Enterprise Academy), coinciding with a special launch party at and hosted by Ilkeston Co-op with special guest - Ilkeston born celebrity Robert Lindsay.

Erewash Sound is a genuinely local radio station, run by local people for local people.  They are a not-for-profit community interest company, run by a team of dedicated but experienced volunteers, and a board of non-executive directors.  This means their advertising and sponsorship revenue - plus other income - is used exclusively to cover running costs and develop the station further.
