Brooklands Radio is a not-for-profit community radio station based in Weybridge, Surrey, UK. It was founded in 1965 by Alan Timbrell and friends as a hospital radio service in Weybridge Hospital, and evolved over the years into a vibrant community station. The station broadcasts 24/7, providing a mix of live shows, pre-recorded programming, and automated jukebox shows. It has primarily targeted its programming towards a 30+ audience living in the Surrey area.
The station aims to provide an entertaining, distinctive, eclectic mix alternative to existing radio stations in both words and music. Its commitment is to giving local communities a voice, providing education and training for schools, colleges, and other bodies, and supporting local voluntary organisations.
Brooklands Radio has grown from the enthusiasm of a small group of people in Surrey who believe a really local radio station will strengthen the sense of community and make their locality a better place. The station now operates with over 40 volunteer members who bring their own on-air personalities and skills, allowing for a variety of programming and new ideas to flourish.
