Flipside Radio (formerly Lache FM) is a community radio station for Chester. We aim to celebrate the people, music and culture within our community. We promote local musicians, charities and community groups, as well as playing a wide range of music, from chart pop to roots reggae and everything in between. All of our presenters are volunteers.

The radio station broadcasts online, twice weekly and on FM radio on occasion under a Short Term Restricted Service Licence (RSL), granted by Ofcom (Office of Communications).

The station is a part of a community group called Lache Community Development Trust, which is a registered charity.

The idea is to get ordinary folk, regardless of ability and or experience involved in producing radio content for the station.

Drop us a message if you’d like to get involved.
