Gulshan Radio will become the first Asian radio station to launch in the Wolverhampton area on the FM band.
No doubt, Gulshan Radio will be welcomed with open arms by the large Punjabi community in the Wolverhampton region. The station’s director, Gulshan Dhingra was awarded a five-year community licence last year. Community radio services are provided on a not-for-profit basis and focus on delivering specific social benefits to a particular local area or community of interest.
Gulshan Radio is already well known in the Wolverhampton community after broadcasting several short-term licences during Vaisakhi. It now joins the likes of Raaj FM in Birmingham and Ambur Radio in Walsall as the other Asian community services offered in the West Midlands. They will all face competition for listeners from 20-year old, Radio XL, which broadcasts to the entire West Midlands.
Gulshan Radio is also in search of local individuals to voluntarily work at the station as presenters. Contact [email protected] or Gulshan Dhingra on 07931 373 613 for further information.
Gulshan Radio will go live on 106.9 FM in Wolverhampton on Thursday 11th February 2016.
