Support our hands-on creative community

Resonance is not just a broadcaster.

It is an invaluable cultural resource that directly and indirectly impacts on people’s lives. Over twenty two years, hundreds of people every week, and thousands each year, have volunteered their time to feature on our airwaves, visit our studios, produce programmes, engineer live bands, create jingles, perform live music and poetry, host and co-host programmes, conduct interviews, appear as guests - and, of course, listen live!  

Support emerging broadcasters

“I got involved in Resonance FM’s Smashing Records show because I wanted to try something new out, to learn about my community as well as understanding people's disabilities. When I lost my job, Smashing Records kept me busy and not worrying about what's going to happen next because I know it's going to fall into place.

“What I learnt from being on the show weekly is to be more confident in myself and it's ok to make mistakes and don't be hard on yourself when you do make mistakes.”

Paige Tribe, volunteer

A broadcaster’s journey

“Before I had heard of Resonance FM, I was lost at sea. My dreams of becoming a fully-fledged filmmaker were being placed on a raft to be sent to drift out into the beyond, as the doors into the industry slowly closed and responsibilities of fatherhood and husband-hood began to take hold. While I was still happy to focus on providing for my family, a part of me I never thought I showed even to my wife slowly died inside (though she would later go on to tell me she saw it in my sad smile everyday). Then in July 2017, fate intervened. Arriving earlier than usual to catch a flight overseas for my day job led to me having a conversation with a lady who was sat next to me. We talked films, tv shows and everything in between, whereupon she told me she was a volunteer sound engineer at Resonance FM and thought I would ft in as a radio presenter talking about films and tv shows.

Shoot The Breeze is our weekly one-hour talk radio show where we shoot the breeze with personalities from the film and tv world about their projects and their favourite films and tv shows.

“Had I not sat next to Laura that day, I wouldn’t have heard of Resonance FM. I wouldn’t have met the wonderful people that run the station and keep the shows running. I wouldn’t have had any of the opportunities afforded to me since which have led to me developing two feature films which will shortly be in production.

“A couple of years ago, my wife told me how glad she was that Resonance FM came into my life, because she feared the downward spiral for which I appeared to be heading. I can comfortably say - for me - Resonance FM saved my life, and I will forever be grateful to all involved for doing so.”

Marcus Ako, filmmaker and host of Shoot The Breeze

With Arts Council England funding secure until 2026, Resonance still needs to build on this support to maintain and extend our activities over the next three years.

To achieve that, monthly donations are critical. Not only can monthly giving be more convenient for supporters, it also eases our cash flow, allows us to budget more accurately and, critically, allows us to do better work overall, over a longer period, to support the Resonance community of makers and listeners.
