About Us

Why we are here

Instant Radio Station takes pride in supporting grass roots media organizations and anyone wanting to get involved in digital radio.

Whether you are a bedroom hobby music station, a community project, new to online radio, or an established operator, we hope the free content on this site will inspire you.

Hyper-local media

Hyper-local radio is the future; filling the gap created by corporate broadcasters who have abandoned many communities. These stations used to broadcast music made by local people, report local news, and have local people presenting programmes.

We want to help grass roots media that is independently-owned, run by passionate people who support local issues, while at the same time providing an alternative to mainstream media’s tightly-controlled music playlists.

If you have any questions about starting a digital radio station then just use the contact form and ask. We are here to help and assist you (even if you are not a customer).
