Devonstream is an outlet for creativity, information, ideas and conversations. It provides a platform for a diverse range of new and established voices.

Devonstream is an online ‘radio’ station for the county of Devon in south-west England, streaming 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It has a rolling, ever-changing playlist of music, speech, field recordings and sonic art.

These are our guiding principles:

  • We will provide a platform and a voice for all of Devon (including Plymouth and Torbay), including the large parts of the county without any other form of community radio service
  • We’re editorially independent, not beholden to the needs of advertisers or donors
  • We value contributors and listeners as individuals rather than consumers
  • We are independent and based in the county, we are not subject to regional or national management
  • We will partner with local community and arts organisations, as well as local professional radio producers, to bring high-quality local content to the channel
  • We will have a very light curatorial touch on the content we broadcast. Any local individual, group or organisation is welcome to bring content to us: if it is non-commercial; has a clear connection to the county; meets our required levels of technical quality; and follows broadcasting regulations, we will share it
  • Content will follow the letter and spirit of Ofcom’s Broadcasting Code
