Description:
CHES-FM, branded as Erin Radio, is a community radio station based in the town of Erin, Ontario, Canada. It launched on September 25, 2006, and serves the town of Erin as well as outlying communities. The station features regular news updates, and community events.

The concept of "Erin Radio" was given a kick start after the hydro blackout in August 2003. The mayor and council arranged to have a local company provide free bottled water to Erin residents, but, of course, there was no way to get the word out. Phone systems were down, home radios and televisions were off and there was no emergency communications system in the town. If Erin Radio had been operating at the time with a diesel generator, emergency information could have been broadcast to those with car or transistor radios.

On January 29, 2010, CHES applied to change frequencies from 101.5 to 88.1 MHz which received CRTC approval on June 16, 2010.

On April 11, 2011, CHES began a test broadcast on 88.1 FM.
