I was tinkering about ont tinternet yesterday and came across the Sheffield Community Radio stream. And it does happen to be the old crew behind it.. Dunno how long it's been going but can't be long. They don't have any jingles or owt yet so looks fresh to me and all i can say is thank f*+k it's back.. Sheffield Community Radio on tunein! Lock in now for your musical needs.. Just reggae atm though but i can imagine it'll be multi genre pretty soon just like the old one!

SCR was and hopefully still is a great station.

Yes mate totally agree.. Did you live up here when they were on before? My mums mate told me mum about a pirate station in Sheffield back in 89 and that was it, i was listening as much as I could and was a bit gutted when they finally went off for good.. I assume scr and all the other pirates went away because of the demolition of the tower blocks up here at Norfolk Park. They must have got out very far from the top two blocks.

I used to live in Notts, but visited Sheffield a lot in the late 80's to mid 90's. Loads of great stations back then in the area. Nottingham had a thriving radio scene too for many years with all sorts of styles - including a 'comedy' station!

went off air april 99, because of a youth that died, I had the interview on tape but got rid of all my tapes. I don’t fully understand the reasons, it was fairly interesting he talked about been raided he called it a lick, sounds like something you do with an ice scream, they had been broadcasting on the frequency of ymcr radio barnsley at the time was 107 when they complained, ‘it was riding crisp into barnsley’ said he was packing all his equipment away in a cupboard
