Frequently asked questions

About Me.

Who am I?

My name is Douglas Shaun Tonks & I'm the owner of the newley reformed Wrekin Radio (Shropshire)

When did you re-form?

I tried to contact the previous owners of Wrekin Radio (formally known as Wrekin City Radio - WCR) or (The Hot FM) in July of 2020. Unfortunatley I didn't manage to do that, so I took it upon myself to reform the long lost, long missed Wrekin Radio (Shropshire) on July 28th, 2020

Why did you re-form?

I was thinking about the old pirate radio stations of the past that have virtually disapeared due to the internet revolution & have always wanted to run my own station, so that's exactly what I did.
