Spectrum FM goes inland

Spectrum, the local radio station which is proud to use this site as one of its major news sources*, has gone inland!

Richard sent me this press release earlier. Cutting it short, it´s 90.8FM on the playa, 96.1FM once you get off the motorway heading up to Albox.

Spectrum FM Costa Almeria expands inland
After years of successful and informative broadcasting on the coast Spectrum FM have decided to replicate the format inland after swathes of requests from English speakers from the following areas. So now as well as on 90.8FM from Mojacar to Mazarron on the coast you will be to tune to 96.1FM which will encompass Lubrin, Albox, Arboleas, Baza, Cantoria, Albanchez, Purchena, Taberno, Oria, Huercal Overa Velez Rubio, Puerto Lumbreras and Lorca.
Richard Shanley of Spectrum FM spoke of the new plans; “This is great news for listeners and advertisers alike. We will now be reaching in excess of 2000 Sq kilometres of our beautiful area making us easily the largest Spectrum FM region throughout the network.
Advertisers will be able to target their marketing either coastal or inland, it’s a win win situation for everyone. With all new equipment installed in the Spectrum FM studios in The Parque Comercial in Mojacar and state of the art transmitters the sound quality is significantly enhanced and there is no need to retune your car when you drive inland or vice versa. It will all be done automatically via the RDS system on your car stereo. Obviously if listening at home or work then please tune your radios to the correct frequency for your area which is 90.8FM Coastal and 96.1FM Inland.”
Spectrum FM Almería is administered by the ACIEE (Asociación Cultural para la Integración de los Extranjeros en España), so the expansion will directly result in thousands of ex-pats accessing local and regional information on a daily basis to assist with their integration into the local community.
In addition, as Spectrum FM Almería will provide a vital lifeline to these residents in the case of emergency situations such as forest fires, storms or floods. The stations presenters are experienced in relaying messages from public administrations to a large audience in English, and are able to provide a unique community service under adverse conditions.

Good luck Richard!
