The Disc Directory, an innovative business directory based in Portsmouth, has teamed up with one of the largest radio stations on the south coast, Ocean FM 96.7-97.5 Hampshire.

The Disc Directory has sponsored the station's weather announcements in a deal that will see the company supporting Ocean FM for the next twelve months.

Currently, over 10,000 businesses are featured on Portsmouth's Disc Directory across 1,500 categories with Southampton planned as the next region over the coming months.

"We are delighted to be working with Ocean FM and sponsoring their weather. Whilst the weather may sometimes be unpredictable our commitment to this isn't and we are certain that it is going to be beneficial," said Operations Director Philip Molden.

The weather will be broadcast to Ocean FM's 198,000* weekly listeners across the south coast - from Chichester to Winchester.

"We are all about supporting local businesses and the community and we believe Ocean FM is the one of the vital keys in delivering this. Listen out for us from the 30th April," said Philip.

The Disc Directory website is now online at, and for those without internet access the directory is also on a credit card sized CD which will be delivered free to over 235,000 Portsmouth homes and businesses during May.

The innovative business directory features a unique customer feedback facility called ‘Word of Mouth' where it highlights the most recommended businesses and shows feedback from genuine customers.

"The Disc Directory is a directory for both local businesses and local people. It benefits everybody and the more people leaving feedback about the companies and businesses that have provided them with outstanding service, the better it will be," added Philip.
