Soundart Radio is for the people of Totnes and creates opportunities for practising artists, musicians and engaged consumers to use radio as a means of creative expression. It serves a rural community distinctive for its independent and innovative approach to art and cultural activity. The station’s broad editorial reach reflects this spirit and provides opportunities for local people to make original and creative programmes.
By volunteering with us, you are offering your support to help make this happen. We trust that you understand and share our values, and want to work towards a fairer, kinder world. We do what we can to find suitable radio slots for everyone who is interested, but this is not always possible, and we have to ensure the range of programmes offered fulfils our licence agreement. We take pride in sounding different to other radio stations.
We welcome people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. As much as possible, we offer training and support, camaraderie and friendship. We provide a safe space for you, and have insurance, policies and DBS checks in place to help us to do this.
We are regulated by Ofcom, which stands for 'the office of communications' and their job is to make sure broadcasters behave well. This means that listeners can make complaints to them. Ofcom have the right to take away our licence or fine us if something goes wrong. So its really important for all our volunteers to take responsibility.
