Brooklands Radio is a not-for-profit station for Surrey that can be heard every day with all the best in local features, news, travel and good music.
The origins of Brooklands Radio go right the way back to 1965 when Alan Timbrell and his friends set up a hospital radio service in Weybridge Hospital. Alan reassembled the team again in 2005 to celebrate that station's 40 years of broadcasting. Following on from those celebrations, Brooklands Radio was set up and it has grown from the enthusiasm of the small group of people in Surrey who believe a really local radio station will strengthen the sense of community and make their locality a better place.
Brooklands Radio aims to provide an entertaining, distinctive, eclectic mix alternative to existing radio stations in both words and music. They are committed to giving local communities a voice, provide education and training for schools, colleges and other bodies and support local voluntary organisations. They also help and promote local businesses through interviews and amazing value on air commercials to offer the best possible service.
Behind Brooklands Radio is a great team of over 40 volunteers who put together live programmes and also work behind the scenes to deliver over 100 hours of mainly live, Surrey focused, output each week.
