About Red Sands Radio

Red Sands Radio takes its name from the sandbank and WWII Army Sea Forts off the coast of Whitstable in the Thames Estuary

We made our first broadcast from the WWII Forts in 2007 to commemorate the last ‘Pirate’ (Offshore Radio) stations that operated from the Towers outlawed by British legislation 40 years earlier

With a sharp focus on the coastal towns community Red Sands Radio came ashore in 2009 and now operates from studios in Whitstable

Attracting 1000’s of ‘Local’ terrestrial listeners throughout the Coastal Towns and many further afield by Internet and other outlets Red Sands Radio is a proven popular local station. Programmes contain a high level of topical local information and stories, interspersed with local travel, ‘what’s on’, guests, local music and unsigned acts. With a strap line ‘From the Coast to the City’ Red Sands Radio plays the ‘Best of Yesterday & Today’

Astoundingly during 2009’s broadcast our website recorded 475,119 hits with 12,340 visitors listening and viewing 114,219 pages from 30 countries. In July 2010 we exceeded these figures with 14,879 visitors, 132,054 page views & 591,847 hits from 49 countries. Red Sands Radio is the local Radio Station with a Worldwide Audience
