Who am I ?
My name is Shaun and I have a passion for trying to entertain people via the online radio service.
I've been a fan of radio since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, I'm still knee-high to a grasshopper and I'm still a big fan of radio, both legal and pirate radio stations.
There aren't as many pirate stations about today as there was when I was younger, this mainly the result of the internet revolution.
Since the old Wrekin Radio stopped broadcasting in 1992, some 28 years ago now and after applying for a local broadcast licence in the Telford area of Shropshire in 1998, they were eventually turned down and the local licence went to a new station Telford FM. Many of the radio presenters have had a successful career in broadcasting others weren't so lucky.
Wrekin Radio (Shropshire) was revived in 2020 by me after failing to contact anyone from the old station and to date we've been pretty successful, with many DJ's coming from the USA, some in Philadelphia others in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Why am I on Tipeee?
I've opened a Tipeee page because as the only contributor at the moment cost can run into serval pounds, just to get off the ground initially.
To give you a quick idea of the costs involved, just to host the radio stream costs in the region of $45 per month.
If I can get regular support of the lovely people who are passionate about listening to radio stations, the station will grow much more quickly and also in quality.
As stated, all tips received will go directly into the running of the radio station, website and email hosting etc...
