Your Local Radio Station

Switch Dunmow …..

Is the brain child of Jacky Rom, the Station Controller.
Over 2 years ago Jacky, who also runs the Arts Centre Dunmow, was struggling to let everyone know what goes on in The Arts Centre.
One day she thought “Let’s have a radio Station” and now 2+ years on it’s become a reality.  Switch Dunmow launched on Monday 6th of January 2014 with over 50 Volunteers. They were all amazed that over 3,000 people listened in the first month.

Now they are listened to by over 20 countries world wide and have over 34,000 listener sessions per annum!

Although Switch is a Community Radio Station, all the presenters love the idea of reaching further afield.

Switch Dunmow has a show for everyone, with easy listening throughout the day and live shows from 6pm.
If you are interested in joining us a volunteer do get in touch!
