Punch was appointed by Everton First to set up a legal citywide FM radio station for students at the Everton Free School in Liverpool. Broadcasting on 87.7FM across Liverpool, BEAT FM joined our portfolio of successful participatory radio projects during Black History Month 2013. These award-winning initiatives, including BASS FM in Birmingham, provide public platforms for up to 40 young, first-time broadcasters at a time. As well as offering them air-time and an audience, participants aged between 16 and 24 received around four weeks of bespoke training before going on-air to connect with their city – as well as an average of online audience of around 10,000.
