The Voice - Local Radio for North Devon - Broadcasting from Barnstaple on DAB Digital Radio and on 106.1 & 107.8 FM

Roy Grimes

I have had an interest in radio and music since my early teens. Back in the 1970’s I used to listen to radio Luxemburg on Medium Wave (1439kHz). Those were the days, when the sound of radio came complete with whistles, pops hisses and whines!

Later in life I have presented for Tarka hospital radio as well as, briefly, for Anka hospital radio in Warwickshire. In the late 1990’s I had my first taste of presenting on FM radio, when I presented ‘stand-in’ shows at Lantern FM, which really gave me the bug!

I have been involved with what would develop in to The Voice right from its conception when I began producing and presenting shows for the internet based Network 1 and also Network North Devon, which began following the announcement of the closure of local radio in North Devon. It is very rewarding to be involved with the re-birth of North Devon’s local radio service, on DAB and hopefully soon on FM too.

My taste in music is varied, even eclectic! Personally I enjoy listening to all genres of music from 1950's through to the latest sounds. I believe that radio is at its best when it is interactive, so check out my show on Thursdays between 6-10pm and whilst listening, take the plunge and get in touch. Look forward to hearing from you.

Four decades of music. A chart from this day from the 60's, the 70's, the 80's and the 90's. Great hits and great memories.

Service Status

FM Failure - Barnstaple, Bideford and  Surrounding Areas

We are aware of problems today that are causing silence to be broadcast on our FM service. This is being caused by an equipment failure at our primary transmission site and is affecting all areas apart from Ilfracombe.

We are working on restoring the service and expect that it will be fully functional by Monday morning.

In the mean time, you can continue to listen on DAB or Listen Live Online
