The closure of Saint FM has been greeted with dismay. A succession of e-mail messages have been broadcast, many from overseas listeners who tune in via the internet.
… and now Saint FM will be closing down on Friday 21st – will miss it, it’s the first thing I log on to each day and have it on ’til late at night. No more daily news bulletins several time in the day.
