Sad but life’s tough if you can’t pay for yourself you go down the sink i can think of more things that deserve the funding.

A community radio station could be forced off the airwaves due to funding cuts.

Salford City Radio first broadcast in 2007 and is run by passionate volunteers.

The station on 94.4 FM won a Golden Jubilee Award from the Queen in 2016 for providing an ‘inclusive, educational and entertaining service for local people of all backgrounds and cultures’.

Former Hacienda DJ Graeme Park is just one of dozens of presenters. But the station’s future is under threat as Salford council funding cuts hit home.

The station’s board was advised three years ago that funding would be cut from £55,000 to £25,000 last year. It ends completely this year.
