  • All this week is National Volunteer Week. 
Without volunteers, all 400 plus of them RTRFM would come to a grinding halt and we are so unbelievably grateful for all the time our presenters, office volunteers, production volunteers, event volunteers and everyone else who helps out.

During Radio Love Month we love the idea that you also care about the people who bring you the radio and the time and effort that goes into making radio 24 hours a day 7 days a week. 
So from RTRFM thank you to all our volunteers and thank you, our listeners for supporting them all.
  • Our mates @mary_street_bakery are getting on board with #radiolovemonth with a special donut. $1 from every donut sold over the the next 7 days will come to the station. 
Get on down for some Raspberry and Dark Chocolate glaze magic.
