More about Garrison FM
The private company Garrison Radio was brought into being in 2001, by the former Radio 1 DJ Mark Page, to serve British Army garrisons around the UK.
The Army had decided it wanted to have its own radio service for its troops based in Britain and as part of an Army Communications Initiative, the radio station was contracted to broadcast an entertaining mix of music and chat, with an emphasis on bringing Army News to soldiers, their families and the wider Army community. This it has continued to do and from that exciting start, great things have been achieved along the way, including the opening of more and more Garrison Radio Stations.
The company now serves Aldershot, Catterick, Colchester, Edinburgh, Leconfield and Salisbury Plain on FM and Bassingbourn, Glencorse, Wattisham and Woodbridge on 1287AM.
