I’d just like to say that I hear music here that I would not come across otherwise and enjoy the stimulus of something different. As a one-time resident of Cannock (Kilmorie Road), I often tune in well before the Curveball and remain tuned to the station for quite a while afterwards. Memories of happy days.

The Curve Ball is a delightfully eclectic and hugely entertaining treasure of a show. Both erudite and witty, it brings pleasure and surprise with every broadcast. One of those unique shows that make online radio such a pleasure.

Our Timeline

Catch Up With Our History

The year it all started… 2014 was a rollercoaster of a year for Cannock Chase Radio FM! Cannock Chase Radio FM started as an online radio station broadcasting to those that knew of us, trying our utmost to give the best tunes to the community of Cannock Chase.

Fast forward two years Cannock Chase Radio obtained their first premises, this was an outstanding achievement for them as it was the stepping stones for something much greater. They continued to grow their presence within the community and grow in popularity, having their eyes set on becoming Staffordshire’s largest FM radio station.

Cannock Chase Radio FM obtained their FM license to broadcast live radio on 89.6 and 94 FM as well as being awarded the Gold Station title. They celebrated in The Merchant, hosting an FM party welcoming local supporters within the community.

Continuing to grow in popularity, Cannock Chase Radio had been approached by Cannock Council to do the Christmas light turn on in Cannock. Spreading a festive season, the night went to plan whilst they delivered the festive tunes!

The rollercoaster didn’t stop there! Two years after getting their FM license they wanted more! Cannock Chase Radio FM approached Ofcom for a third frequency covering Burntwood, Lichfield and surrounding towns and areas. After a long wait, they were finally granted 89.8!
