Alive Radio, in the Dumfries area on 107.3fm, in D & G Infirmary on the Hospedia system and online, on this website. Most weekdays, we’re running from 7am – 9pm or later with real people live in studio!
We’re run by a bunch of enthusiastic people from in and around Dumfries, seeking to build community spirit and help people feel good about living here.
Alive Christian Radio was formed in 2004 as a result of two people who shared a dream. Local Christian worker, David Currie and Church Pastor, Mark Smith, had a coffee together and began to share with each other their dream of having a Christian radio station which would be widely accessible on FM in the Dumfries area.
They invited interested people to get together and after a lot of hard work and occasional tears, Alive was launched. The first broadcast period used a 28 day Restricted Service Licence during July and August 04, on 87.7FM and online through aliveradio.net. Over 50 people were involved in the project, mainly as presenters. In 2005 we ran the project again with even greater levels of success, and encouraged by this we decided to run once again in 2006.
On 11th May 2007, we were approved for a Community Radio Licence by Ofcom, and began broadcasting on 107.3fm on 1st September 2009.
