RTRFM relies on the generosity of our listeners to keep the station on air and the lights on. RTRFM does not receive any on going government funding but more so looks to subscribers and donors to keep the station operating throughout the year. Radiothon, each year accounts for close to 1/3 of the operating costs for the station and allows us to continue to bring you the best and most diverse independent radio in WA.
RTRFM offers subscription packages for students and holders, bands, businesses, families, and offers special bonuses to Gold & Platinum subscribers. Each subscription category has its own associated major prize, while subscribers who pay for their subscription upfront will be eligible for daily prizes which will be announced in the coming weeks. The major prize draws will be drawn on Saturday October 15 after the pledging period closes.
