What is Triangle FM?
The first Triangle FM broadcast was a project run by Forest Community Media that brought Community Radio back to the Forest of Dean following the demise of Forest of Dean Radio in 2009.
The project had funding from “Awards for All” for training ten young people in radio skills and helping them make and broadcast radio programmes. Actually 14 young people (and a team of adults) were trained and went on to setup and manage the station and produced and presented the station’s scheduled programmes. This training was supported by the Student Radio Station (Tone Radio) of the University of GloucestershireThe project broadcast on the FM band covered the Cinderford area and ran fom the 26th to the 28th of November 2010.
Because of the success of that effort a second project using the same "Triangle FM" branding broadcast in late 2011. This time it lasted for 10 days and focussed on getting publicity for the various groups, clubs and charities working in the area.
