Kirkcaldy’s community radio station is to get £4400 from the town’s Common Good Fund.

The financial support for K107fm was agreed by councillors at today’s meeting of Kirkcaldy area committee.

The station, founded in 2012, requested the funding to help with the costs of renewing hardware and necessary licences which will cost £8800 in total.

Local members and Kirkcaldy West Community Council all gave the application their support.

The station, based at New Volunteer House in East Fergus Place, is run by volunteers.

Each week over 30 people are involved with the station which runs 24/7. It covers 60,000 people, and is the only FM independent radio provider in Fife.
