Radiothon 2016 – RTRFM 92.1

Our favorite local community radio station is having its annual ‘Radiothon’.

The ‘littlerascal’ absolutely loves this station and listens everyday for the great diversity of music (new and old), independent news, community topics, local music, arts & culture and more – presented across a bunch of awesome shows!

Radiothon is RTRFM’s annual 10-day fundraising drive. RTRFM relies on the financial contributions of its listeners to survive, and revenue raised during Radiothon makes up 30% of our annual operating income. The continued support of listeners during Radiothon ensures that RTRFM can continue to deliver unique programs and events, and remain a high-quality alternative to mainstream media in Perth. It is your station as much as it is ours.

During Radiothon you can join us:

  • At the Radiothon Party, which takes place across five venues in Northbridge on Saturday, 13 August;
  • In the RTRFM office by volunteering your time in our phone room; and
  • On air at 92.1FM and online at rtrfm.com.au, 24 hours a day.

Dig Deep and show RTRFM your support during Radiothon 2016 by subscribing or donating. You’ll be investing in a broadcast voice for independent artists and thinkers and contributing to your community in the most positive way.

 

Keep the Community in Your Radio

The Federal Budget contains cuts of $1.4 million p.a., funding that currently keeps community radio stations broadcasting on digital in 5 capital cities. Community radio’s standing alongside public and commercial broadcasters is at risk. 

The good news is that community radio has great community support and during this election campaign we’ll be speaking up loud and clear and calling for both the Coalition and Labor to restore the funding if they win government.

Sign the petition below and we’ll make sure that both Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten get your message.

Petition

Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten, as a supporter of community radio I’m asking you to reinstate funding to keep community radio on digital if you win government.

Community radio serves so many Australians; from radio reading for people with a print disability to programming in the different languages spoken across our country, to Indigenous broadcasters, faith based stations, regional stations and youth stations.

Please don’t leave community radio behind.

TICKETS ARE CHEAP, BUT HURRY…

A friendly reminder to get your tickets online for $35 +BF before 7AM tomorrw before you have to pay $45 (cash or credit card) on the door, and that’s if there’s any left at all… One ticket provides access to the three main ticketed stage areas; The Urban Orchard, Museum Courtyard and the State Theatre Courtyard. No wristband no entry, though you’re free to roam in and out all day!
