  • We are very happy to welcome Neil Coyn to the Moorditj Mag family. Neil and Jim Morrison were joined by WA Greens @senatorsiewert this morning to discuss the Close The Gap Initiative.

  • @hyperfestival 2018 is on this Saturday
With such an incredible line-up of acts on the #RTRFM Stage, we are pumped for the weekend!  @psychedelicprncrumpets  @pownegro  @glasswaveperth  @carla_geneve  @slywithers  @wintercorner  @arnofaraji  @vacanthomeau  @jfkperth  @mukavhatti  @losthonoursband
  • A little while ago, our friends at @rhubarb_records decided to solidify themselves as  the greatest people ever by giving #RTRFM 50% of the proceeds from the sale of 500 copies of @kinggizzard album #polygondwanaland on vinyl.
We now have it on good authority that there are only 20 copies left! 
If you haven't got your copy yet, head on down to #rhubarbrecords or jump onto their website before the last few sell out from under you.
  • “When I heard this song it stopped me in my tracks because it was such a beautiful, haunting melody”
 @helenshanahan  is a big fan of @timothynelsonmusic  Nelson's knack for writing melodies and she played one of her faves on RTRFM 92.1 for #SlightlyOdway this morning.
She’s getting ready to bring her dog Toby along when she plays RTRFM's Neon Picnic 2018 on March 17.

  • What a surprising, yet very welcome shout out we got from Tim Hammond  @tim4perth during his speech in parliament regarding the  Broadcasting Legislation Amendment (Digital Radio) Bill 2017. 
We are incredibly proud and honoured to be a chosen example of community radio broadcasting, and why government support is so integral.
If you would like to read the speech in it's entirely (and I do hope that you will, it is a great speech) you can find it at www.aph.gov.au

  • This week's RTRFM local feature album is one very near and dear to our hearts. With less than 400 speakers of the noongar language left, 5 time WAM Award @wam_musicwa  and 2017 West Australian of the year recipients Gina Williams & Guy Ghouse come armed with their new album Bindi Bindi (Butterfly), the follow-up to 2012's Kalyakoorl (Forever), predimonately in language. Informed by four principles; Koort (Heart), Moort (Family), Boodja (Land) and Koorlangka (Children/Legacy), Ghouse’s delicate fingerpicking and traditional folk melodies, interwoven with Williams emotive, soaring vocals reflecting universal themes of love, loss and belonging, result in a beautiful full-length celebrating one of the world's oldest languages.
