Station House Media Unit (shmu), established as a charity in 2003, is one of the core cultural organisations in Aberdeen, and is at the forefront of Community Media development in Scotland, supporting residents in the seven regeneration areas of the city in radio and video production, traditional and on-line publications, music production and digital inclusion. The organisation also supports other disadvantaged communities, both geographic and communities of interest, with an employability and training arm and a programme for offenders, both pre and post release.
Summer 2007 saw shmuFM move from a community radio license which allowed the organisation to broadcast over a 10km area to full FM frequency broadcasting.
We are two years in to our second 5 year license from Ofcom and are going from strength to strength. This means that 24 hour broadcasting will continue until 2017.
