DISCOVER A BIT ABOUT ENDEAVOUR FM'S HISTORY AND HOW WE GOT HERE
From our origins in 2008 to the present day, it's been quite the journey.
Pic: Various names, studio locations and volunteers, have all changed through the years.
July 15th 2006 - Tulip Radio and Blackfriars Arts Centre launch 'Stump Radio', Boston's first community radio station.
It is a short-term licence, meaning only allowed to broadcast for 28 days.
Summer 2007 - back for another 28 days thanks to Tulip and Blackfriars.
July 12th 2008 - back again (this is when we took over) and proved so popular we brought it back again for Christmas
but with a name change 'Endeavour FM.'
March 28th 2009 - we launched 'Endeavour Online', our attempt to keep going on the internet, given we weren't allowed to carry on with FM (yet) and
we have been online until the present day!
We had an influx of youngsters from the Boston Grammar School, who we trained - four of which now work in radio.
We went from helping people with their outside events, to organising our own.
2013 - Boston got flooded and we were on air. In fact, we were the first in the area to let people know
of the impending danger.
We stayed on air until the water was coming into the radio station itself. Something we will never forget.
2014 - organised 'Flood Aid' a fundraiser for flood victims and the biggest musical event the town had seen in years.
We were also invited to apply for a full-time licence before the summer and in December we were awarded it by Ofcom.
2015 - preparation and planning for full-time FM underway and in the summer 'The Big Boston Gig' a weekend music event
to bring touring bands and celebrate local talent in Boston.
We are now in 2016, we intend to launch Endeavour FM in the summer. The team is working hard to get things ready, we've waited a long time
for this and we cannot wait to broadcast to Boston Borough and for you to hear it on your radio.
