  • We have done a lot of things in our 40th year. To close out 2017 and our 40th year we will be doing a series of posts with the hashtag #whatayear #rtrfmis40.

For In The Pines 2017 we landed a white whale of the event as Jebediah closed out the gig, twenty one years after their first performance in 1996. Having the support of local bands that have made a career and a life out of music taking time out of their schedules to play for us is always a highlight.

ll the bands that played RTRFM events do it for the love and we are always humbled by their dedication to the station. 📷 @sebastian_photo

  • We have done a lot of things in our 40th year. To close out 2017 and our 40th year we will be doing a series of posts with the hashtag #whatayear #rtrfmis40.

We are also asking some of our volunteers and presenters to give us their highlights.

This year we said good bye to a couple of staff members at the station as economic realities took hold. Long time Production Manager and former Full Frequency - RTRFM 92.1 presenter Adrian Sardi left the station, as well as Marketing Manager Matt Tomich and Development Manager Ashlee Wiley.
Most notably however, Peter Barr moved on from the station to take up a role at the ABC South West. Pete hosted Breakfast for 10 plus years and was at the helm of The Mag for a number of years afterwards. He left a definite hole in the fabric of the station and although not the same the place is all the better for his presence over 23 years. He will be back on the RTRFM airwaves soon, we just know it.
