Wednesday, 6th March
First of fifteen Access Radio stations take to the air for a year across the country.

Britain's first Access Radio stations can now be heard over the airwaves on FM. The three not-for-profit stations can be heard in Bradford, Havant and Stoke-on-Trent.

Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB) will reach out to underprivileged communities, offering them a platform from which they can promote and discuss social and cultural issues. Local people will be able to contribute to the role of presenting. BCB launched on 96.7FM on 1st March 2002.

Programmes from Stoke-on-Trent's Cross Rhythms City Radio are aimed at the local Christian community. Cross Rhythms itself can already be heard via satellite television. The station for Stoke can be heard now on 101.8FM.

Finally for now, Angel Community Radio is targetting itself purely at the over 60 age group. The station hopes to get as many of its listeners as possible involved in training workshops. The station has launched on 101.1FM in Havant, Hampshire.
