Radio Love Month May 2019

RTRFM Launches RADIO LOVE MONTH throughout May.

Local community radio station RTRFM is calling on its listeners and supporters to donate throughout May and show their love for the station during Radio Love Month.

RTRFM is a not-for-profit independent radio station which is funded by a community of listeners through subscriptions and donations. Radio Love Month is a chance for people to show their love and allow us to continue producing high-quality music and talks programming year-round.

This month we’re asking 1000 listeners to show us some love by donating at in May, whatever you can afford, whether it’s $5, $31, or even $92, it all helps us to keep the love flowing. By donating you are helping the station continue its support of local music, arts and cultural content across the 48 shows broadcast 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

For 42 years RTRFM, The Sound Alternative, has been the home of local, Western Australian music that strives to be a counter point to other radio stations by promoting local, independent artists, musicians, performers and businesses across metropolitan Perth.

The people you hear on RTRFM love the music and ideas they share with you, and they love the concept of a community radio station where all sorts of voices can be heard.  A lot of love goes into making the shows you hear on RTRFM; they’re a labour of love by many volunteers.

If you love the music and ideas you hear, and you love the fact that independent community radio exists, show us some love by donating at in May, whatever you can afford, even $5 will help us keep the love flowing.

RTRFM is a registered charity, which means you can claim a tax deduction on any donation you make before the upcoming end of financial year.

Friday 12th July

Heavenly Bodies: 25 Years of Ambient Zone



Visit Fremantle Festival: 10 Nights in Port in style with RTRFM’s Heavenly Bodies: 25 Years of Ambient Zone. Celebrate 25 years of ambient music, weird experimentations and soul moving curation from RTRFM’s Ambient Zone.

Join us at St John’s Church in Fremantle as we fill the hall with the wonders of some of Perth’s finest ambient and experimental musicians in the stunning surrounds. Catch the sounds of Naik, Masonik, Nika Mo, Daisie’s Night, Ryan Beno and Emlyn Johnson.

We haven’t seen him playing live for close to 2 years but multi instrumentalist and all round audio wizard Naik is back. He has some new tunes on the way and will play a very special ambient set as he fills the church with his mesmerising sounds. Plus, his visuals will astound you.

Ryan Beno are a perfect representation of the unbelievable talent of musicians in WA. Made up of WAAPA and non WAAPA mates, Ryan Beno make jazz fueled ambient beats and pieces. Having kicked around the Perth experimental scene for over 10 years, Masonik make jazz and experimental music that pushes the boundaries of both genres.

Relatively new to the live music scene, Daisie’s Net uses multiple instruments to create layered and deeply textural lo fi music with a emphasis on story telling and the human experience. Nika Mo is a song writer of the highest order, making magically folk music that will fill the church. Also catch the sounds of Emlyn Johnson as he takes us into his wonderfully magic and odd mind with a collection of country tinged ambient tunes with his mate Edo.

Heavenly Bodies: 25 Years of Ambient Zone takes over St John’s Church in Fremantle, Friday July 12 as part of the Fremantle Festival: 10 Days in Port.
