  8. The PROGRAM COMMITTEE, in recommending approval of program proposals, takes into account the nature of the program and whether the day and time proposed is suitable. Any change in the nature of a program can impact on other programs and can affect our overall programming. For this reason you way not change the nature of your program without prior approval from the Programming Committee or the Board. For example, if you had approval to present a Country program, you could not change it to a Rock 'n' Roll program, without prior approval

Service information

We love meeting listeners - if you see our Outside Broadcast bus near you, come over and say g'day! Sadly because of the current social distancing, we can't get out and around as often as we'd like. We'll be back out and around the community again as soon as we can do so safely.

Why not call the studio and say g'day or make a request instead? Call (02) 45 899 899 or you can text a request on 0427 899 899

We don't currently have any Outside Broadcasts scheduled - why not have us broadcast from your function/promotion/event?
