Fuse FM Back On Air
UNIVERSITY RADIO station Fuse FM went back on air on Sunday for what they are promising will be their "best ever" broadcasting session.
The station were initially denied an on air slot for their spring semester session – but regulators Ofcom dramatically relented.
The local community station which was to take The University of Manchester's 28 day broadcasting slot collapsed late last year.
This upcoming broadcast will be Broadcast 16 and radio station staff said they were "hoping to really make waves" within the student population of Manchester.
Station manager Sarah Vale said: "We are really excited to have the licence back. Fuse has gone from strength to strength thanks to the hard work that has gone in all round, and we hope to see the station become one of the top student radio stations in the country."
The station, which broadcasts from the basement of the Students' Union on Oxford Road, will follow the well-established pattern of chat and topical broadcasts during the daytime, and music shows of various genres in the evening.
They were promising that Broadcast 16 will include something to suit for all styles and tastes.
Fuse FM has been granted a licence to broadcast for a 28 day period, commencing Sunday 10th February, by Ofcom, the board who issue licences.
