About Our Radio Station

Lake District Radio is your truly local Radio Station, broadcasting 24/7 from our studios at Plumgarths on the edge of Kendal.

Our presenters are local, and love to hear from you in regard to local events / happenings / weather / travel and traffic reports. Our target audience ( during the day times ) is mature listeners with the station having a younger slant into the late evenings.

We can do outside broadcasts from anywhere ( seriously – anywhere 😊 ), and have our own Outside Broadcast Unit available to broadcast from your event, business, or even your home.
