10k ‘Yes’ click target achieved

A couple of days late but we got there! 10,008 Yes clicks expressing the want for a new station in Bristol and SWU FM being awarded a full time licence.

56% of you expanded on your yes vote with a written explanation of why you want SWU to be a full time station.

32 people said no, none of them used their real names or email addresses.

In light of the above statistics and our 6.5 million website hits during our trial broadcast, we hope to be invited to apply for a licence in  2017.

We’ve just submitted these stats but the survey will remain open on our website for the immediate future. Every extra survey entry we get between now and the pending application invite will help move us forward.


Thanks a million (10,008)
