Angel Radio back on the air

A GENEROUS donation has allowed a community radio station to get back on the air waves.

Angel Radio has been broadcasting on a weak signal since October, when its mast was damaged during a gale, and running on a temporary aerial pole loaned by Wight Fibre.

However, Binstead-based company, Clark Mast Systems, has stepped in and donated a new mast.

Programme controller, Bev Webster, said: "We could not believe our luck and the kindness of Clark Masts Systems to help our listeners pick up our signal properly again.

"We have the finished mast and it is absolutely state of the art and much stronger and more durable than our old one."

Nostalgia station Angel Radio broadcasts music from yesteryear and can be found at 91.5 FM
