Voice FM is Southampton’s truly local radio station. Broadcasting from St. Mary’s in the city, across Southampton on 103.9 FM and online, the station went live in 2011 to provide a service to the local community, both as a hit music station and an education and training service.
Voice FM plays a variety of current chart hits, rock, indie, & alternative music throughout the day, as well showcasing local bands with a “Homegrown Hit” taking centre stage on our playlist each week. From 6pm each evening we provide a variety of specialist programs to reflect the diversity and tastes of Southampton, including Soul and R&B, Rock, Underground, Disco Classics and the latest Dance Anthems. Along with that, we feature local organisations and artists that deserve recognition.
Voice FM creates opportunities for over 100 volunteers, in roles both on and off air. We have a number of different applicable skills that people can learn from Voice FM, in a friendly environment. We believe in equal opportunities, so we try and include people of all abilities and backgrounds.
What people are saying…
“I have to say that Voice really is one of the best run, most professional and polished outfits that we work with, and that is across all forms of radio, not just community. You guys are an absolute credit to local broadcasting – a welcome break from the dross and dull output that generally poisons the airwaves!”
“I have to say, mate, that I am a massive fan of what you guys are doing down there – you’re pretty much the only local station that manages to be locally relevant but does it with [the] current voice of real people – not the big syndicated robot sound that so many have decided to put up with. I’m chucking it out there – Voice FM is my favourite local radio station. [Which is a] bold claim, I’m a BIG radio fan!”
“The money that we raised from the activities at the front of the store [for Sport Relief], the other specific fundraisers and the sales of merchandise was a staggering £20,000.
This is an amazing total and I want to thank you and your team so very much for allowing us to include you in this. You and your staff were so helpful and great fun…and we have some great feedback. Please pass on our grateful thanks to all of your colleagues involved and we all are looking forward to fun things in the future.” Sainsbury’s Hedge End
