Halesowen College Radio

Halesowen College Radio is the radio station of  the UK’s  Halesowen College and plays many genres.


HCR is Halesowen College’s very own radio station situated at the College in Block 2.

HCR started back in 1998 as HCFM broadcasting on a loop around the college. As the station grew, more and more presenters have joined the station and it has continued to grow till this day. In 2003, the decision was made to acquire a LPAM licence for the radio station to broadcast on 1386AM and in 2007 to broadcast online.
