About 106.8 TCR fm

TCR fm is a community radio station in Tamworth, Staffordshire. Launched on 31st October 2009 we are run entirely by volunteers, and not-for-profit. All of our presenters work for the love of radio, it's a great experience whether you've always had an interest in radio or you want to volunteer for a hobby with a difference.

Our name is Total Choice Radio and that is what we are able to offer! Unlike commercial radio we don't have set playlists or guidelines on when certain genres of music can be played. Our presenters have total choice over what they play and they produce their own shows. Therefore our output is as unique as our team; one showcan be completely different to the next.


TCR Music

Expect brand new and favourite pop hits, some rock, a measure of eighties and everything else in between! We are aimed at the young population of Tamworth and the surrounding area and we're a bit different there too....

Fans of rock music should check out our specialist shows:
Mondays 8pm Bizbo's Rock Show
Wednesdays 9pm The Box of Rock with Ian

If dance is more your thing check out:
Fridays catch Reece Duncan with Funk Me live from 6 - 8pm
Saturdays 9pm Transmission Project with Jimmy and Brina 

Every night at midnight it's one hour of non stop Northern Soul from 12am.

If you want to know what we're playing the most, we have our very own Take Control Chart show on the first Sunday of every month live 7-9pm. Aaron Beadle and the chart team count down the top songs played based on TCR fm's airplay and votes on our chart page.
