Radiothon 2019 - Friday 16 August to Sunday 25 August

Radiothon is RTRFM’s annual subscription drive. It's the time of year when our presenters, volunteers and staff call on you, our listeners, to put your money where your ears are and SUBSCRIBE and donate to keep community radio strong and vibrant.

The financial support you give us during Radiothon makes up 30% of our annual income and makes sure we can continue to make the independent radio which is an essential part of a vibrant local culture and diverse media landscape.

You’ll hear all about it on the radio, and it’s your chance to show your support and be in the running to win some great prizes!

  • While you sleep or maybe while you are awake a whole team of volunteers keep you company on Uplate and Snooze Button.. they play you all kinds of tracks and bring you all sorts of talks in the early morning/ late night. 
It is such an important aspect of RTRFM that we often forget about but it is where our new presenters find their feet and their voice and we are so happy they are with us. 
If you are awake and up, drop them a subscription or a call. 
Liam and Emma brought you Uplate this morning and had all kinds of fun.
