103 The Eye - 103.0 FM Melton Mowbray
103 The Eye is a popular community radio station that serves Melton Mowbray and the Vale of Belvoir in the East Midlands of England. The station takes its name from the River Eye, which flows through Melton Mowbray. It has the distinction of being the first community radio station in the United Kingdom to begin broadcasting on a full five-year licence granted by Ofcom.
Before 2004, the station was known as "TWC", and it held several 28-day Restricted Service Licence broadcasts. Its goal was to persuade the Radio Authority to license a new local commercial radio station to serve Melton Mowbray, Cotgrave, Bingham, and the surrounding areas of southeast Nottinghamshire and north Leicestershire.
103 The Eye broadcasts a variety of popular music from the 1950s to the present day, along with specialist discussion and music shows. The first song they broadcast after the official launch in 2005 was "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor. The first presenters' voices heard were those of Cliff King and Dave Baron.
