Welcome to Siren FM!
Siren FM is proud to be Lincoln’s first community radio station and has been broadcasting since 11th August 2007. We aim to make radio accessible to all and especially those aged between 9 – 25 in the Lincoln area.
We have a full time licence from Ofcom and therefore we’re a proper radio station broadcasting on 107.3 FM and www.sirenonline.co.uk.
Although we’re based at the University, we are not a student radio station – we are very much a community station and our doors are open to all. The station is a place to explore in a friendly and safe environment just how much fun radio can be; and, who knows, we may even be the spring board for launching the next big career in radio!

Meet the team
Andrew David – Managing Editor
I’ve been in BBC radio for ages – ever since 1972 when even Terry Wogan was a young man – I used to work on providing music for his Radio 2 show. Since then I’ve worked at BBC Radios Nottingham, Kent and Lincoln and been the front man on TV – East Midlands and Midlands TODAY.
I’ve been looking after the radio station, Siren FM, since before the studios existed and I can honestly say it’s the best job I’ve ever had, working with a fabulous team of dedicated and exhaustively hard working volunteers.
Long may it continue!
Ian Mills – Front of House
If you ever come in to the office, have an inquiry about the station or do work experience with us – you’ve probably met Ian. He keeps the station functioning day to day and looks after our work experience program.
You’ll also hear Ian on air on a Tuesday morning hosting the Mill-stone Breakfast, and joining Geoff on a Wednesday morning for Halfway There.
Jonathan Cresswell – Online Editor
Graduate of the University of Lincoln, freelance journalist and web designer, Jonathan built the Siren FM website and keeps it up to date. As well as managing many parts of Siren’s tech and digital side, he also celebrates it as the presenter of our geek culture show Connected.
Stephen Brien – Music Coordinator
I first started working at Siren in the summer of 2008, writing copy for the 5.45pm news bulletin, after graduating in Journalism from the University of Lincoln in 2006. I’m a co-presenter on End of the Week, a show that takes a light-hearted review of the week’s local news.
I’m also Siren’s Music Co-ordinator, responsible for all the music, old and new, that goes out on Siren – mainly keeping the station up to date with the latest releases on our playlists!
