New Studio

Exciting times ahead for GFM

If you haven’t seen the new studios yet- they are a real treat to work in with lots more room, soundproofing and are generally the real deal. More importantly they provide a great opportunity to build on the past five years and ensure community radio is here to stay in Glastonbury.  We will be able to train more people, work with community groups and schools to help them get on air,  do more recordings of local performers- music, drama etc- all the things that make for a flourishing community station.  All this can also help generate income as it attracts business support – grants and hopefully and donations from new “friends of GFM” (have you signed up yet?  If not contact us for more info)

There is still some and testing and retraining to do for all our current presenters before we finally go live from the new set up but it won’t be long now.  We will have to celebrate the opening of course so keep following us on facebook and the website for more information on that.

So all of that is to come.   But we do need your help; If you have any ideas of how we can move the station forward and you can help please let us know.  For example- Do you know a local business person who might want to advertise on GFM or a community group with an upcoming event or a local sports team that you play for or follow?  Why not put them in touch with us?  Email admin@glastonburyfm.org.uk or call 01458 899811

New Telephone Number

GFM will shortly be moving into the new studio to that effect we have had a new telephone line installed with a new telephone number.  The number is 01458 899811.  At the moment there is no answer phone service to this line, so if we are not in the studio please ring again later.

The Festival – From The Outside-In

 

From the Outside - In

From the Outside – In

“From the Outside In” brilliantly captures the partying, carnival and artisan experience that Glastonbury is famous for, alongside a rarely seen visual journey of what it takes to make Glastonbury happen.  From the police operation to the waste management, transportation and media broadcast set-up, Glastonbury based photographer Laura Zaky’s debut book is truly unique in showing the wider story of this iconic event.  Michael Eavis the festival founder has written a foreword and 50% of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the Glastonbury Abbey Ruins Fund and Glastonbury’s community radio GFM.

 

Speaking about her book Laura said, “I’ve been photographing the festival and it’s impact on the wider community since 2008 and amassed over 6000 photo’s in that time.  I could see from the visitors to my flickr site that their is a huge appetite for Glastonbury photos and decided to collate the best of those into a special collection that shows the wider Glastonbury story”

 

The book is available from Osmo Publishing  ISBN 978-0-9927068-0-7   Price £5.00
