6 Towns Radio is partnering with Cre8 Radio and will be sharing FM broadcasting on the frequency 87.9 between Wednesday 30th May and Saturday 23rd June. For the past few years Cre8 Radio have been broadcasting from Staffordshire University for the community of Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme.
The launch day is also the day that the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay passes through the Stoke-on-Trent area, an event that includes 6 Towns Radio presenter Dan Tatton carrying the torch at the nearest point to 6 Towns Radio Burslem studio, on the following day it heads out of the 6 Towns on it’s way North to Bolton. The event will be on air and online, including the evening held in Hanley Park on the Wednesday evening. The broadcast is also being organised in association with fantastic local organisation B-Arts. The Newcastle based organisation develops creative programmes and projects that sustain, develop and enrich communities in the area. The stations are also being linked to the Fringe festival and the Staffordshire University Degree Show, both of which take place during the 25 day broadcast.
