As relative newcomers to the radio scene it soon become clear that was already around didn’t really cater for local radio in the way that we feel it should.
So, although perhaps similar in format to other stations, we feel our approach will make it the one radio station you love to log onto.
One thing you will notice is that we love sport and our sports team of Adi Hopper, Ian Perkins and Dave Prior have a wealth of sports experience and above all contacts.
Adi Hopper was Head of Media at sadly now our local National League Club Yeovil Town for 15 years, enjoying all the highs of a FA Trophy Final victory in 2002 and two subsequent Play Off finals at Wembley, and is still involved with the club as project manager and administrator of the YTFC.

But it’s not just Yeovil Town and football our sports team will be covering. All the local teams from the Yeovil & District Football League, The Perry Street and Devon County Leagues and any other football featuring in our recognised broadcast area. We alsoare featuring two podcasts covering The Toolstation Western League and The Devon Football show and soon to be joined by a local boxing podcast
Ian Perkins has been a passionate Yeovil Town supporter for the last twenty years and bleeds green blood as he experiences the agony and ecstasy of following the Glovers, not to mention the Gooners.
Dave “Hilda” Prior is our match analyst at Huish Park and on away games as he too experiences the highs and lows of supporting Yeovil Town.
His other passion is the boys in Red from Scouse land so you can expect plenty of rivalry with Adi who of course is a true Red devil!!
Adi’s other passion is for horse racing which extends to part ownership of six flat horses and his contacts, including friend of the station, Cheltenham Gold Cup winning trainer Colin Tizzard, will feature strongly on the sports shows.
And that’s not including his connection with local cricket at North Perrott Cricket Club who play their cricket in the West of England League.
We will follow other local sides including Yeovil, Chard, Crewkerne and Ilminster, Axminster and Sidmouth and any other teams from our area.
In the Summer months County and Minor Counties cricket will be featured heavily with regular contributions from Jason Kerr, Head Coach of Somerset County Cricket Club.
And don’t forget there’s loads of great music on the station.
