We’ve just launched a new website designed to give free help and advice to anyone who wants to set-up a Radio Ramadan station on FM.
We thought about it for ages and eventually settled for the name “Radio Ramadan Help”!
It’s a free source of information to help you set-up a totally legal Radio Ramadan station in your area. On this website we introduce you to the basics, suggest a plan of action, and give you a host of resources to help you get started.
Please pass the word on to anyone you know who may be interested. Feedback welcome, but go easy on us!

Local Radio Project Manager Short Listed for a National Award
Project Manager Dave Murat who set up Chorlton Arts Radio in 2010 has been short listed as a local digital hero out of hundreds of entries.
Chorlton Arts Radio is a short term radio project that transmitted online for 2 weeks from an empty shop front in Chorlton Precinct, a suburb of South Manchester.

Dave Murat says “I’m really excited to be short listed for this award that recognises all of the hard work put in by the volunteers who produced and presented great radio shows over 14 days and gave airtime to 95 live acts, staged 10 live and put over 400 people on air, including a local theatre school and a Girls Islamic High School.
Our website had 10,000 hits over the two week transmission and we used Facebook and Twitter to promote ourselves and the acts appearing. …
