Happy Birthday shmuFM

shmuFM is celebrating its 7th birthday today!

Summer 2007 saw shmuFM move from a community radio license which allowed the organisation to broadcast over a 10km area to full FM frequency broadcasting.

We are two years in to our second 5 year license from Ofcom and are going from strength to strength. This means that 24 hour broadcasting will continue until 2017.
