About The Voice

The Voice is Managed and staffed predominantly by volunteers who live and work within your local community.   

Following the announcement of and the subsequent closure of the broadcast studios in North Devon, the area was left without a truly local station for North Devon.

In June 2010 – a campaign was started to get a local radio station back in North Devon for North Devon.

By November 2010 studio equipment had been bought and the first 28 day Restricted Service Licence (RSL) broadcasts started. A series of short term broadcasts followed in Barnstaple and Bideford up to March 2012.

In April 2012 – The Voice launched as a Digital Radio station broadcast on DAB (Digital ) Radio around Devon (except Plymouth).

Also in April 2012 – The Voice was granted a community radio licence to broadcast on FM around Bideford, Barnstaple and Ilfracombe.

January 2014 - Our new FM service was launched on Saturday 18th January 2014, on 106.1 and 107.8 fm.

Paul Hopper

Breakfast with Hopps. 

All the usual stuff from your local breakfast show.  Weather, travel updates and news. We'll take a look at the local stories hitting the headlines. Quiz of the week could be anything from Anagramalebrity, Here come the drums, The Name Game or whatever tickles my fancy this week ... sometimes there's a prize too ... but more often than not, the reward is getting your name on the clever clogs list.

Guests at 0915 and 1015 and tell me your Top 3 tunes. Could be from one era or genre. Maybe 3 songs that have real meaning in your life or reming you of a specific occasion. Whatever your Top 3 is, let me know. Either call me during the show 01271 323 010 or better still email studio@thevoicefm.co.uk . We could be playing them at 1030.

... too much to mention ... you'll just have to listen!
