Today marks 18 years of full time broadcasting on our permanent full time community broadcasting licence. It’s a day to celebrate the past 18 years, and to look forward to the next 18 years.

Also, this November will mark 30 years since the original formation of SWR 99.9 FM way back in 1991.
Hundreds of fiercely passionate volunteers have dedicated tens of thousands of hours to get us where we are today – and we thank each & every one of them.

Just as important is the support we have had from our listeners, who have stuck with us through this whole incredible journey.

SWR always has been – and always will be YOUR station – thanks so much 🙂

There’s also some great reading on our history page on the website if you want to soak up some SWR heritage!
