What is TCR fm?
All TCR fm volunteers go through the TCR fm media course where we teach everyone how to use the studio and how to make a radio show. You just need the creativity to decide what to put it your show. This type of radio station is called a Restricted Service Licence station (RSL). This means that we can transmit on FM radio for 28 days at a time twice a year.
TCR stands for " Total Choice Radio ". The idea behind the station is just that, to give young people total choice of what they do and listen to. Our presenters have choice in what they play and theres usually something for everyone, no matter what your taste in music. And if you dont hear what you like then tell us and we'll do something about it . Larger radio stations dont always play requests but TCR fm is one big request show.

How do I join?
TCR fm is free to join but we have a £10 broadcast fee (payable before a broadcast). You get all of our free training and can then join in when we go live across Tamworth. The fee helps towards our licence costs which are not cheap! (Broadcast dates are confirmed during training)
Ask any questions before applying. Training includes the technical equipment, presenting tips, news, research and show peroration. You dont have to decide exactly what area you want to apply for yet, so you can learn it all and then decide how to join in with a broadcast.
How do I get in touch with TCR fm?
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
