Amber Sound FM

Amber Sound FM is a local radio station based in Ripley and broadcasting on 107.2 FM and online 24 hours a day.

The station is predominantly music based and offers an alternative to the independent stations with a music selection stretching over 60 years and radio presenters that are allowed to put out their personality on air.

The station prides itself on listener interaction and invites contact by text, email, phone and chatbox at all hours of the day. Much of the time they are a request or dedication station and listeners certainly take advantage of this. They are a 'not-for-profit' organisation which relies on advertising sales, national and local grants and donations.
