Pleasley Vale Radio Broadcasting

More than just music


Are you thinking about advertising but not sure if it’s right for you?

Here at PVR, we provide a range of advertising stratagies from radio spots to website ads.

Also remember… whenever you advertise with us you are also helping to keep your truely local and community-based station on the air!



On-air ads play out in ‘ad blocks’. We normally have 3 ad breaks per hour, each of which contains one ‘ad block’ that is up to 3 minutes long. There are normally 12 ad blocks that play in rotation, one in each break, so an ad placed in one block would play aproximately once every 4 hours. If you would like your ad to play more often then you can buy space in additional blocks. Buying space in two blocks would mean your ad could be played aproximately every 2 hours. Buy space in four blocks and your ad can be played every hour.

Scripted ad or ‘read out’

Up to 30 second ‘read out’ £5 per block per week or £10 per month

These adverts are simply read out by our presenters. There are no production costs involved, making this the cheapest and easiest way to get your message out on the station and can often be inserted into our schedule at short notice. We are happy to work work with you to ensure that your ad gives all the details you want and is tailored to your needs.


Professionally recorded advert

Up to 30 second ad playout £5 per block per week or £10 per month

We can either produce a fully recorded ad for you, or you can supply your own for us to play out. Our produced ads can be enhanced with sound effects and music which results in a catchy advert listeners actually want to hear.

Please note that there is a £60 production charge if you would like us to fully produce an ad for you.



Website advertising

£5 per week or £10 per month

Our website is constantly used by listeners to keep up to date with the latest news and shows and also to listen live online. Our adverts are strategically placed so they are noticed by listeners however they don’t look tacky so they are not unattractive and overwhelming. These adverts would be on the website 24/7. Please note: This package does not include radio advertising unless ordered together.
