Let's take a minute to salute the individuals, crews and organisations who have been doing this long before we were on lockdown. All the community radio stations, DJs, podcasters and presenters who have been doing this for years, often for no money, purely for the love of it.

With so much new content, we shouldn’t forget about the thousands of community stations and DJs who’ve been there week in & week out for us.

I’ve cobbled together a list of people and stations that have been at it for ages (and doing it correctly). Please jump in and comment with your own suggestions too, it would be lovely to hear what you have been listening to! Check out the list below.....
