On April 9, 1969, Radio Anguilla began broadcasting from the Agricultural building in the Valley for the British occupation on the island who had donated the equipment.
However, the need to communicate with Anguillians eventually led to a gradual shift in the focus of Radio Anguilla which was able to refute misinformation and to begin a well-needed service to the island.
Over a period of time, the station emerged as a community radio station – seeking to inform, educate and entertain the people of the island.
The advent of more radio stations on Anguilla has driven the station to become more creative in its revenue generating measures. One way of doing this was by the introduction of sponsored programming.
The introduction of specialized programming, such as “Country Time”, “The Quiet Storm”, “The Reggae Show”, “Jazz with Johnno and James”, “El Buen Vivir/Pleasures in the Caribbean” and “What’s On Today” has forced the station to extend broadcast hours from 10pm to 11pm.
Talk shows like “Social Solutions”, “Health Matters” and “Choice Sports” as well as a comprehensive news package ensure that the listening public is kept abreast of what takes place on the island, in the region and throughout the world.
Today, with affiliations that we have made, Radio Anguilla boasts some of the most current music that is on the market.
As the Governments Department of Information and Broadcasting, there are a number of events that Radio Anguilla is obligated to broadcast. Examples of these are House of Assembly meetings, State Occasions, Parades and other live events.
To this day, Radio Anguilla has continued to provide Information, Education and Entertainment to the people of Anguilla and beyond.
Radio Anguilla can be heard on fm band 95.5, on channel 77 on local Cable TV and via the world wide web at www.radioaxa.com.
