Our Journey into Media
As teenagers, Samuel Isaacs, Ross Arrowsmith and Steven Fulford started Spare Moment Online, an internet radio station.
Rename to Radio Bicester
Moving from a hobby to a business, Spare Moment Online becomes Radio Bicester and is now a community radio station for the people of Bicester and Oxfordshire.
£16,000 in 8 months.
Generating over £16,000 in revenue within the first 8 months, Radio Bicester becomes a Limited Company and later changes to a C.I.C.
Inital Growth Plan
Plans developed to create sister stations across the country and to build a nationwide community media organisation. Commercialisation and preparation into strategy explored.
yWe Media founded
Created with the intention of leading commercialisation, yWe Media is born. Initial focus is on platform capabilities for Radio Bicester and podcasting technology.
Podcasting Software Created

The Future and Change

This process evolved into the launch of YCAST…
Launch of YCAST.io (B2C)
Pivot from a community podcasting service to a digital audio agency. Launch of YCAST.io, an evolution of the yWe podcasting solution, open and affordable to all. Development of other podcasting tools to help podcasts underway.
