About Sine FM
Sine FM 102.6, Doncaster''s Local Radio station, being the first not-for-private-profit station in the area, was launched in January 2007. Sine FM was created to provide a platform for creative expression and a distinctive, accessible community radio service, celebrating the diversity of Doncaster.
OFCOM awarded us an FM Broadcasting License in December 2007 and we ran several trial broadcasts before launching our full time FM service in September 2009 on 102.6 across Doncaster alongside our internet radio station / online media service.
Sine FM is an initiative of Higher Rhythm Ltd operating as a not for profit social enterprise. The other elements of our company include a pro level recording studio - higher rhythm, a record label - circuit records, a music industry events and development portal - the music week, and we focus strongly on offering a wide range of training and development opportunities for local people.
