Want to be a part of The Bear? Find out about our levels of membership…


All our presenters are volunteer amateur radio enthusiasts, with a wide range of radio experience. If you fancy yourself as as presenter then get in touch. We don’t always have shows available, but if we do we’ll give you a shot. And we’ll give you all the help you need to have a great show.


As well as the people you hear on the station we’re also looking for people to help keep it going behind the scenes.

Producers, Graphic Designers, Social Media Experts… we want them all!

Or if you just want a say in how the station is run, this is the membership level for you.


Got a podcast you think would be a good fit on The Bear? We play podcasts at various times of the week, and are always looking for new podcasts to showcase as part of our Podcast Network, where you get some great additional benefits.


This level of membership is reserved for those individuals and companies which have assisted The Bear in our activities. This includes our Syndicated radio shows, advertisers, sponsors and more.

Associate members do not pay fees and do not hold voting rights, but are able to raise issues at our meetings.
