Survey deadline Friday 16th December

Does Bristol need a new radio station? 5,000 of you have said yes, but can we make that 10,000 by our deadline on Friday 16th December?

SWU FM have the opportunity to apply for a full time FM radio license in early 2017 – but first we have to show the licensing authorities that there’s demand for SWU FM (Full story here:

To do this we created an online user survey that over 5,000 of you have completed with a 99.9% ‘Yes’ rate. This is a great start but we’re only 50% towards the finish line. Our end goal is to get 10,000 ‘Yes’ clicks via the survey and we have less than 2 weeks to do this. You don’t even have to be from Bristol to take part; we would also love to hear from UK and worldwide listeners.

We know its hassle, we know putting it off until tomorrow is the way it goes, but please get involved while you still can! It really does only take 2 minutes; with a few clicks you can help us get closer to that 10k milestone, and the new station Bristol wants and needs.
