Community radition station Severn FM is closing down this Saturday.
It had served the Quedgeley, Kingsway and Hardwicke communities for 18 months.
Its army of volunteers have gone on the airwaves each week, involving schools, councillors, older students and ordinary members of the public.
But it was reliant on advertising from local businesses - and that money has dried up.
The last show will broadcast on Saturday from 8am until 10am before the equipment is dismantled and returned to its owner.
Previous shows will remain on the website with the hope that the station can be resurrected in 2014 with the next round of community grants becoming available.
Founder Andy Clarke said: "We have all invested a lot of time, energy, emotion and effort into creating a great station, however, we have had to be objective about the current situation and have had to make a very difficult decision but one that never-the-less needed to be made."
