Sponsor a Show
Regal Radio is a registered charity based in Bathgate, West Lothian. Broadcasting 24/7 via the internet, we have a loyal listenership throughout central Scotland and beyond, extending throughout the UK to North America, mainland Europe and Australasia! The station is 100% staffed by volunteers and no one receives any income from being involved - indeed, all members pay a monthly subscription just to be part of it. Why? Because we are passionate about music! The station presents shows across all music genres, including rock, pop, country, dance, jazz, Americana, blues, new wave, etc.
Having been accommodated within the Regal Community Theatre since 2014, Regal Radio moved to its own premises in Glasgow Road, Bathgate, in February 2018. We love our new studio but, naturally, we are now incurring costs we didn’t have previously. Things like rent, insurances, energy costs, etc., are soaking up much of our funds and we are therefore inviting community-spirited businesses to sponsor individual shows or to generally advertise on Regal Radio at very attractive rates to help offset this expenditure.
What do I get if I sponsor a show?
Well, you get a tremendous warm glow inside from knowing that you are contributing to a local community-based music-related charity, and comfort from the assurance that 100% of your donation goes on operational expenditure and 0% on admin or staff costs! In addition, you’ll have:
- a jingle at the start and end of your chosen show (e.g. “The ABC Show, sponsored by XYZ!”);
- name checks by the show’s presenter throughout each show;
- an advert up to 45 seconds long played during your sponsored show and randomly in other shows;
- your advert played around 30 times weekly on our automated system which broadcasts 24/7 when there is no live show on;
- your business listed on the Sponsors page of our website, with a brief outline of your services; a link on our website to your company website;
- a framed certificate to display in your premises, showing you are supporting a local charity.
Sounds great! How much?
The sponsorship package outlined above costs just £300 per year! What’s more, you can pay by Standing Order at £25 per month if you feel £300 is a lot to lay out at one time. Advertising-only packages are also available at lower cost.
If you’re interested in coming on board as a Regal Radio show sponsor or to generally advertise on the station, email Willie Evans at [email protected] and we can arrange an informal no-obligation chat to discuss options. Thank you for even considering supporting us. We love you to the moon and back!
