Felixstowe Radio now offers the public a chance to watch selected shows from the schedule live in a live video format. The camera availability, times and duration’s vary based on a range of different things and we don’t always broadcast the camera live to the website. It is the discretion of the live presenter as to when this camera can go live and Felixstowe Community Radio respects the privacy of its members so not all of our shows will be streaming in video. At this time this facility is still experimental.
