Welcome to this new website to accompany the Taste Wolverhampton radio show.
Taste Wolverhampton is broadcast on Wolverhampton’s community radio station. If you’re in or close to Wolverhampton, you can hear it on your real radio on 101.8 fm. It is also available on-line at www.wcrfm.com.
There are pages on the website telling you more about the aims of the Taste Wolverhampton programme and the radio station 101.8WCRfm. You are invited to get involved with both. None of us are paid, so we rely on goodwill, advertisers and sponsors.
I was unsure about continuing the programme after taking a break in November 2013. Wolverhampton seemed to have been in decline since it became a city, and it was hard to find new material to broadcast about. But walking around in July 2014 the place seemed a bit brighter. A few interesting new places to eat have opened, while the bakery Baked in Tettenhall did so well in ITV’s Britain’s Best Bakery earlier this year. And we now have the West Midlands’ first micropub and a new brewery.
So, let’s hope Wolverhampton is coming back to life and let’s give it some support. Feel free to post in events and get involved in WCRfm: your local radio station. This website is very new, so some areas will see further growth: the events diary in particular, and the links page a little more. I’m not planning a list of local eateries at this stage or taking adverts, but either could change. If you’d like to advertise your local business, please contact the WCRfm Sales team.
