Plymouth Sound is an Independent Local Radio station broadcasting to Plymouth in Devon, England. It is owned by GCap Media. The name is a pun on the popular meaning of "sound" (in the audio sense) and the bay of Plymouth Sound between Penlee Point and Wembury Point in Devon.

In November 2005 it was announced that GCap's local radio stations in the South West, including Plymouth Sound, were to be sold as they were outside of the company's primary target area [ [http://www.gcapmedia.com/assets/dynamic/87/files/full_interim_statement_and_numbers.doc GCap Media Interim Statement] ] . Four months later GCap decided that the sale would not go ahead, essentially because the offers made fell short of their expectations [ [http://www.gcapmedia.com/assets/dynamic/92/files/station_disposals_announcement_final.pdf GCap Media Disposals Announcement (pdf)] ] .

Cross Rhythms

The Christian media group and radio station Cross Rhythms grew out of a half-hour Christian music show on Plymouth Sound FM, which aired on Sunday evenings between 1983 and 1996. Initially called "The Solid Rock of Jesus Christ", the show was renamed the "Cross Rhythms Experience" in 1992, and became a syndicated show in 1993. It was hosted by Chris Cole, the founder of Cross Rhythms.
