A listener comment:

“Having lost Wessex FM radio, and looking around for another local radio station, I stumbled upon your Keep 106 radio, so glad I did, what a find! You are now playing daily in my kitchen via Alexa, and on my portable radio outside weather permitting on 106.3fm whilst having our lunch. Keep up the good work, wish I had found you earlier – perhaps more advertising? Anyway couldn’t resist letting you all know how much appreciated you are.”
