Robbie Benson here with a brief insight into how your dreams can come true …….. as a young child, I always thought that my mission was to entertain, and it is a journey that I have continued on all my life. Standing on the rooftop of the youth club looking in at all of those dancing teenagers all I wanted to do was to be on that stage …. and then it happened completely by chance. Then through a lot of hard work – mobile disco’s, night clubs, massive venues – it was time to put all my experience and hard work into an idea that hit me like a bolt of lightening – a radio station for the area that I grew up in…….. so here’s what happened …..
At 10 am on Saturday 28th November 2015, something very special happened in Newcastle-under-Lyme!
Hitmix Radio was launched, broadcasting across the borough on 107.5fm. A brand new community radio station, supporting local issues and news combined with an eclectic mix of music to suit all tastes, genres and ages.
History was made on that day, as Newcastle-under-Lyme has never had its own radio station before. We believe that our borough deserves its own radio station and identity!
Since being awarded our FM licence on 2nd October 2014, a dedicated team of volunteers have been hard at work! We have a purpose built media complex in the heart of Newcastle-under-Lyme with the the ultimate in high-tech studios.
Our musical policy ‘more variety, more of the time’, combined with local news, weather, traffic and travel, sport, interviews and specialist shows ensure that we provide something for everyone! In fact, we have put a “dance floor on your dial”!
As a result of the hard work and passion shown by all the team, we are proud to say that we have been granted a licence renewal to continue to broadcast on 107.5fm for another 5 years. We are in the best place we have ever been with a team of professional, dedicated like-minded people who continue to push forward and regenerate this already FANTASTIC radio station. We have never been ones to stand still – people will come and people will go – that makes us stronger – but the radio station will always remain and evolve providing the ultimate goal …… Entertainment!
