Youngsters in South Gloucestershire have become radio broadcasters with the return this week of Multi FM.
The radio project is broadcasting from the Old School youth centre in Kingswood for the second year running after being granted a licence by Ofcom and will continue with interviews, live music and songs.
Those involved are aged between 12 and 20 and prepared for their week on air with help from Phil Gibbons, the station manager at Bristol Community Radio, and sound engineer Matt Thomas.
Guests turning up for interview include members of Bristol Rugby Club, while Kaman Miller, winner of the Best New Breakthrough Act at the 2008 UK Urban Music Awards, is hosting a regular slot.
The youth centre is run by South Gloucestershire Council and Councillor Sheila Cook, praised the efforts of the youngsters.
She said: "Multi FM is a fantastic project. It has enabled a group of young people to come together and create something they can be proud of, as well as learning new skills."
The station broadcasts on 87.7FM between noon and 10pm until Friday.
