The philosophy of Calon FM is to provide a channel to encourage and facilitate the empowerment, life long learning, development and generation of our community, regardless of race, gender, age or disability – everyone is welcome!
Calon FM is Wrexham’s own Award Winning community radio station. Since March 2008 the station has built up its schedule to offer a wide range of shows for all tastes. We believe community radio is an invaluable platform for people in Wrexham to have their voices heard.
We work with over 80 regular volunteers who do everything from present their own show, to helping out behind the scenes on production, research and fund-raising! All of our shows are inspired by the interests of the Wrexham community, covering everything from local interest news, music, film, arts and sport. We even have shows dedicated to local sports teams Wrexham FC and North Wales Crusaders!
We broadcast 24/7 across Wrexham on 105fm and we also have listeners from all across North Wales, the UK and abroad online.
Over the years we’ve welcomed hundreds of local charities, organisation, businesses and individuals into the studio to offer a platform for the fantastic work which is carried out on a local, national and international level.
