Carnival radio station returns

THE TEAM behind Old Town Carnival Week’s dedicated radio station has announced the return of Carnival FM for 2013 following last year’s successful pilot.

Ofcom has this week confirmed its approval for the station to broadcast live from the Jenny Lind from August 1 to 11.

Carnival FM will provide bespoke coverage of the carnival events, featuring interviews, live bands and competitions.

Spokeswoman Jo Flay said: “We’re all really pleased to be bringing Carnival FM back. Last year the station had a real community feel to it, being for the Old Town from the Old Town.

“We were made to feel really welcome and were thrilled when two of our team appeared in the carnival procession itself!”
