Hey all, We hope you are surviving this current lockdown and are keeping both safe and well.
I have an unfortunate announcement to make. Although I can’t admit to be a leader of a certain current political party, I do have to admit to performing a likewise U-Turn on a statement I made only a month ago.
It is with regret and sadness that we (the committee) have made the decision to not broadcast our May 2021 session via FM. We will however be with you through the month of May, but on the internet and smart devices only.
This is purely a financial decision as we feel that if we commit to the £6000 license fees now, and this pandemic continues to disrupt local businesses, then we will never be able to recoup those funds from advertising or sponsorship and therefore make any future FM broadcast impossible.
We have been so looking forward to broadcasting to you on FM this year, but we hope you will still join us via the internet.
Please keep in contact by checking the website and the Facebook page to find out the May 2021 dates and hopefully some new programs too.
Stay Safe and Keep on Rocking.
The Hastings Rock Team.
We hope you are keeping safe and well during these unusual times. We at Hastings Rock are still busy behind the scenes making sure that everything is in order for our next broadcast. “When`s that then ?” I hear you ask Well I can now say that we are licensed and ready to go for a full 28 day FM broadcast in May 2021... This time even if we are still cursed with a lockdown, the FM broadcast will go ahead thanks to our amazing I.T. team who made both our May and October on line broadcasts this year a success.
So, we look forward to seeing and hearing from you all then. Please keep checking the website and social media for further updates. In the meantime.
Have a safe and Happy Christmas time We wish you a Safe, Bright and Prosperous New Year Keep Calm and Carry On Rockin`
The Hastings Rock Team.

Thanks very much for listening to Hastings Rock during May 2020, we really appreciate all of your support, and loyalty.
We will be back, both on FM and Online, for another 28 days from 1st May, 2021.
We are considering doing another Internet only broadcast later this year, but have made no firm decision about this as yet. If that happens, it is likely to be for only a week, but who knows?
We will obviously keep you posted about that, so be sure to keep checking here for more info.
Thanks again for your continued support, and keep on rockin

As promised here are some more details about what we are planning to bring you during the Hastings Rock broadcast in May 2020. We will be ‘on air’ from midnight on the morning of Saturday, 2nd May until midnight on Friday 29th May, broadcasting 24 hours a day. As mentioned before, this will be an Internet only broadcast with all programmes being online only.

A daily Programme Schedule, including DJ names, will be posted on the ‘Hastings Rock FM’ Facebook page. Obviously this is subject to change.
All DJs will be ‘working from home’, which means that unfortunately not all of your favourite Hastings Rock DJs are able to be involved.
Listeners will be able to contact the ‘on air’ DJ via email and text in the usual way. You can also use these contact details to request a song via Robojock:
DJs may well also use Facebook during their shows, so be sure to check our official Facebook page during the broadcast: Hastings Rock FM.
