Leħen il-Belt Victoria, our parish community radio station which broadcasts on 104 FM Stereo, now has its new studios on the first floor of the Parish House on St George’s Street. This is the second time in its twenty years of history that the station, set up by Archpriest Joseph Farrugia in 1999, has changed its home.
The new premises, consisting of two studios – a small one for live broadcasts and a second one, slightly more spacious, for recordings – together with a waiting area, were inaugurated today by Archpriest Joseph Curmi at the Christmas Novena Mass. Thanks to Mr Paul Portelli of Nadur, they have been designed and equipped with the latest technology to best suit the modern needs of a community radio station.
The process of modernization and rebranding includes also a new logo by a young designer from our parish, Andrew Borg.
Although fully-fledged schedules for special times of the year are expected to kick off next year, depending on the turnout of volunteers, transmissions from the new studios and the parish church are already being broadcast during the Novena days and will continue for the Christmas season. A direct link from the Basilica provides live transmissions of the main liturgical celebrations related to Christmas and the New Year.
LBV 104 may also be followed online through a link on this website.
