Leven Online is a local Media Hub outlet, found at https://levenonline.co.uk/
We are an online radio station, we create podcasts, run a YouTube channel and social media pages, and we are also developing an exciting new schools project. The media hub and schools project have been made possible by funding and grants from Connexion and the Darlington District.
At our heart we are a community project run by the community for the community and hold dear to our Christian ethos. Leven Online is faith in action; from our Thoughts for the Day to our Faith show, and including our relationships we have with our listening community and volunteers we try to model our love for Christ and share him when we have the opportunity to.
Leven Online is still in its infancy but we have already had great successes, we have a great bunch of dedicated and amazing volunteers, we produced some incredible local content, and we are developing an amazing schools project that we believe will be a really exciting opportunity for both our local schools and the churches in our circuit.
Some of our exciting regular shows include...

The 1940's Show by John Earland
The 1940s Show' is a nostalgic look at the music, events and news which shaped that era. You will hear all the most favourite tracks from that time together the not so well known now. We'll feature local news and events as well as looking at the national picture, particularly at the start of that decade and the war years. Each week we will take the corresponding week from 1940 and so on to reveal what life was like back then. As this is the 80th commemoration of the outbreak of the Second World War and the radio station is launching in September, we will be starting the show from September 1939 before going into the New Year and the 1940s proper. You'll also be invited to take part in the show by requesting your favourite tracks and sharing your memories with us.
