Ferndale Community Radio, Plymouth (FCR)


Ferndale Community Radio is the brainchild of former Royal Marine Bandsman, Steve Medlin and his son Ryan Medlin.

Part of the Ferndale Community Tenants’ Group, FCR applied for and received a community grant of £5000 from Clarion Futures to pay for equipment and running costs, helping Ferndale Community Radio to spring to life, going live on July 2nd, 2019.


Initially comprised of a small number of volunteer staff, FCR has had to expand to meet the needs of the community during the Covid19 pandemic; now, with a volunteer staff of twenty-five and multiple studios, on-air twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, Ferndale Community Radio provide local traffic, weather and news, great entertainment and friendly chat, easing some of the loneliness felt by those in seclusion, locally and worldwide.


At the start of the Covid19 pandemic, FCR had just one studio, in the community hub; at present, with the financial help of the presenters themselves and a £1000 National Lottery Community Fund grant to buy equipment and the relevant licenses, FCR now has nine ‘micro-studios set up in presenters homes, allowing FCR to be broadcast continuously.

A mix of live shows and replays, Ferndale Community Radio has steadily expanded during the lockdown, with the recent addition, following the departure of Radio Plymouth, of a live breakfast show, starting at 9 am, to provide the local community with traffic, weather and news updates.


The Ferndale Community Radio team has also done some fantastic work for charity, raising £2800 for Save The Children, helping to raise £800 for Livewire Saltash, and working with Hugs From Henry, a children’s cancer charity, to provide sacks of toys for the children, adding a little magic to their Christmas.
