Formerly Leyland Festival Radio, Radio Leyland is the brand new name for your local FM radio station (104.8 FM) for:

• Leyland, Moss Side and Farington

• Buckshaw Village and Clayton-le-Woods

• Lostock Hall and Penwortham Kingsfold.

• New Longton and Farington Moss

Following the award by Ofcom in December 2017 of an FM community radio licence, we went on air in the above areas on 1 April 2019.

Weekdays we start at 7 am with 30 minutes of 70s at 7. You can hear Breakfast between 7.30 and 9.00. The Mid-Morning Music Mix then takes over with songs from the 80s, 90s, 00s and Now. In the afternoon, between 1 and 3 pm, it’s our vintage music and chat show, Magic Moments. Leyland Drivetime takes you through the afternoon from 3 till 6 pm. Specialist music shows will feature after 7 some evenings and at the weekend.
