AdvertisingHave you had enough of the usual types of advertising? Why not advertise with Alive … we can help you get YOUR message to your customers in our region. Due to a recent change in legislation, your charitable community radio station here in Dumfries, Alive 107.3fm, is now providing ‘on air’ advertising.

We offer Show Sponsorship, which allows your name and message to be associated with a particular show, and also offer the more traditional advert drops into our programming throughout the day. The third option is ‘infomercial’; a more in-depth way to promote a new product launch or a special event.

If you would like to talk to us about advertising, just email [email protected], or call Mark Smith directly on 07710 111727.

Advertising with us means you’re helping support this valuable community radio initiative in our region – thank you!
