Hastings Rock Radio Returns in May

Hastings Rock Radio will return to the airwaves this year on Saturday May 1st for another 28 day broadcast-but this year’s broadcast will be different.

The ongoing  Covid-19 crisis means Hastings Rock Radio has had to adapt, and will only be broadcasting online, not on FM as in previous years. Live programmes will start from 6am on May 1st, with the Hastings Rock Radio DJ’s broadcasting from their homes, instead of the usual central studio.

First broadcast in 1993, Hastings Rock will be back on air and online 24 hours a day until midnight of Friday May 28th, playing its unique brand of classic and modern rock music, specialist shows, and their usual dose of local music.

Listeners from across the world can tune in to the radio station via the Hastings Rock website, their Smart Speakers (Alexa etc), on Internet radios and by using the Tune In app on mobile phones and Smart TVs.

Hastings Rock chairman Ralph Winser said: “We are really pleased to be able to continue with our usual 28 day broadcast in May, albeit in a different format to most that have gone before.

“It has been a real team effort to get this internet broadcast up and running once again, after initially planning for an FM broadcast.

“This will be our third internet only broadcast, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, which means that we can’t use our usual central studio.

“We wanted to get Hastings Rock on air to bring a bit of familiarity during the month of May to all of our loyal listeners and hopefully provide a friendly voice and some great music to help people through these trying times.”
