Cuillin FM began with volunteers
We exist now because twenty years ago a dedicated group of volunteers spent a huge amount of time and energy making their vision of a local radio station for Skye and Lochalsh a reality. And it's the same today. So much has to happen "behind the scenes" to keep us on the air every day. Whether you're listening to your favourite show live from the studio, the shinty outside broadcasts every weekend or the weekly Sunday church service.
We have one staff member, Ruth, who oversees the day to day running of the station, but the programmes you hear on your radio are all presented by our fantastic volunteers. Our board of directors are volunteers too. We have volunteers who help with fundraising, those who help make our outside broadcasts happen and even those who help with the gardening!
We are always on the lookout for new volunteers
We'd love to hear from anyone who'd like to learn to present a show, especially (but not only) our breakfast and drive-time shows. Or maybe you'd like to help with outside broadcasts - learning to set up and down or being a runner at events. Or perhaps you have some design or IT skills. There are so many different ways to get involved.
If you’re interested in being involved, just get in touch with Ruth. We'd love to hear from you.
