About Us

Rhubarb Radio was the brain child of a group of enthusiastic radio presenters Dave Stankler, Jon Butler, Gareth Smith & Roger Hipkiss who felt that their local area needed a fresh ‘tasty’ new local radio service. Although the station can only be currently heard online, the whole team here at Rhubarb Radio are currently working hard to be able to bring a full local service to the district on DAB by late 2018.

Rhubarb Radio is an fun, quirky, up-beat local radio station playing the best variety of music from the 1970s to now with news & weather on the hour 24/7. Covering The Wakefield District & South Leeds we are a local community focused station and encourage community engagement.

In addition we also provide sports news and showbiz news every hour along with the latest traffic reports for the district at breakfast and drivetime. Throughout the day we air specialist features and community chat and endeavour to promote local sport, charities, clubs, societies, businesses and events across The Wakefield District and South Leeds on a regular basis.

We are also an official broadcast partner of Wakefield Trinity RLFC and broadcast all home & away games on air with full pitch side commentary, pre/post match chat and game analysis.
