Advertising & Sponsorship

The easiest and most economical way for a business to reach more customers in their local community is to advertise locally with GFM.

GFM is the local community radio station for Glastonbury, Street, Wells and the surrounding area.  Through our music and talk programmes we reach a wide audience of differing ages and tastes.

About Us

GFM is a not-for-profit community radio station run entirely by volunteers. We broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a potential audience of 37,000 listeners. Our programmes cover a variety of different genres, local business and community issues, the local landscape and heritage, as well as output for and by young people.

GFM provides a voice for individuals and organisations with over 60 different local community groups on air each year. 

Our new transmitter has enabled us to offer an improved service to a wider listening audience.

 What are the benefits of advertising on radio?

 Radio is a trusted medium

  • Radio reaches a variety of socio-demographics

What you get for your money when you advertise with GFM

 There are several ways you can grow your business with GFM:

On Air Adverts

 We can offer a choice of format for you particular business. We can help you create your own advert. Starting at £50 a month, the 30 to 45 second advert plays approximately once every two hours, seven days a week. Or, you can advertise as a short term promotion, for a shorter period, for a specific event.


You can choose to sponsor a show where your company’s name and a brief branding statement is advertised 4 times during the show. This show will be run twice a week.

For £25 a month, you can become a show sponsor.

Business Friends

 If you want to support community radio but can’t afford a full advert you can become a business friend with a link to your website for just £10 a month.  

GFM is at the heart of the local community. Advertise with us and you could be too.
