Just read on their website that several key people are unable to contribute this year so they are taking a break.

Was any attempt made to recruit replacements? Would it be possible next year to ensure that the key people get assistants who could be trained up to cover this situation in the future? I am sure there are many people who would like to be involved in local radio.

There are many local people who would like to be involved in Rocket FM as presenters. This is not the problem, there are more than enough presenters to fill 2 months of programming.
It is the less glamorous side that no one wants to do. The financial, administrative and supervisory roles are the things that keep Rocket FM going.
Last year a notice was placed in Viva asking for help. Quite a few people turned up to the public meeting, and 3 or 4 people took on some extra roles which helped keep Rocket FM on the air last year.
But running Rocket FM for 4 weeks is a full time job that is unpaid, and no one wants to commit to doing this.
If you would like to help with the non-glamorous side of radio then I suggest you contact pete@rocketfm.org.uk

Blimey, Rocket is one of the many reasons I look forward to The 5th. I'm really quite gutted that it's not happening.
Its probably is the worst radio station I've ever heard but I curiously love every second of it. It's a triumph of British amateurism. Lets pray it comes back to entertain us all next year and good luck to the organisers with their plans for 2015.

Why didn't Rocket FM publicise this more before in order to get volunteers? Maybe no-one volunteered to publicise it.

I must disagree with WTF. I once heard a hospital radio station that was worse.
