About Us

Marlow FM broadcasts a mix of music and talk, and regularly comes live from events in the town. It's available on 97.5 FM in Marlow and the surrounding area, and streams online.

Why we're here

Marlow FM is a not-for-profit organisation staffed by volunteers. We run a community radio station for the people of Marlow.

We exist to:

  • Be a focal point to bring the community closer together
  • Provide a platform to give local people and organisations a voice
  • Keep listeners up to date with local news, travel information, and weather
  • Create opportunities for young people in the area to pursue careers in radio and related fields
  • Give businesses the opportunity to advertise their products and services to the community at reasonable prices

We want to:

  • Be one of the best community radio stations in the country
  • Develop our links with local schools and colleges

How we started

Marlow resident Tim Ashburner conceived the idea for Marlow FM in 2006. After two four-week test broadcasts in 2007 and 2009, from a church hall and a pub, Ofcom granted Marlow FM a full-time community radio licence. The station went on air from its original studios at Longridge, Quarry Wood Road, Marlow at midday on Wednesday 11th May 2011.
