    Rhondda Radio

    As I said last month, we would soon have our own Radio Station (s) in the Rhondda, and Radio Cwmni started up in Treherbert this morning on 87.8 FM. I could hear it all the way down to Trealaw - the signal started to fade at the Colliers, and then seemed to disappear by the Royal. It was great to see the name digitally displayed on my car radio.

    The project is funded by the Assembly's Communities@One programme, and Penrhys will follow next. GTFM has been the springboard for the new stations, and Andrew Jones, the former Managing Director of GTFM is putting it all together, with Julie Barton, former Editor of Radio Wales involved in training the presenters. Andrew Routledge, who interviewed me on air this morning, had never been in a radio studio two weeks ago.

    I was pleased to take part in the opening of the station and I wish it well for its month on air.
