AN ONLINE volunteer-led radio station is back on air with DJs presenting from home.

Thanks to some technical breakthroughs and additional funding received, Stirling City Radio is up and running during the coronavirus lockdown.

While the studio had to be locked up, enthusiastic volunteer presenters have been able to access it by remote link to keep shows going.

They include former Alva man Ronnie McLean, who is spinning the records from his St Ninians home, after converting his cupboard into a cosy studio.

He runs his Afternoon Delight show and is asking people to send requests and information via the Stirling City Radio Facebook page.

The station is producing around 60 per cent of its usual live offering, which covers a range of tastes and even features with a Kids' Hour with 14-year-old Rio Kean each day between 2pm and 3pm.

Setting the remote links up was a logistical challenge, according to station manager James Russell, but he was determined not to let their listeners down during the crisis.
