Radiothon 2020


Broadcasting in 2020 has never looked so different, but there’s no stopping Perth community radio station RTRFM 92.1 this year as their annual subscription drive RADIOTHON kicks off from 14th to 23rd August 2020.

Creating radio remotely from the comforts of their homes, backyards and bedrooms, RTRFM 92.1 reimagined how radio is produced and what it means to be a community led station in 2020 while the city was locked down. We stuck with you, now stick with us.

RTRFM is funded by local people who believe it’s important to hear different music, local stories, and diverse voices on their airwaves. RTRFM are now calling on our subscribers to keep the community in your radio. By becoming a subscriber, you are:

  • Showing you care about local music, local artists, and local voices.
  • Supporting the cultural fabric of our city and amplifying different sounds and ideas.
  • Connecting to local people telling local stories in your community.

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

This year the world is different, and we can safely say RTRFM has been a constant for people during isolation and tough times. Radiothon is your chance to show your support and help local content thrive stay on the airwaves.

Radiothon 2020 will be all gas, no brakes this year as There’s No Stopping Us, but we need your support. Launching the event is the return of our hugely successful Radiothon Early Birds and Breakfast with Taylah broadcast at the Bird from 6am. Sound tracking the early August glow are the pillars of our scene, with DJ Aslan, Girlname and Will Bixler on the decks.

Followed by a Northbridge takeover for the Radiothon Party on the 15th of August at Ezra Pound, the Bird and The Rechabite with DJ’s from Full Frequency, Trainwreck and Black n Blue DJ’s.

Why stop there though? Make sure you are locked onto RTRFM all week as we continue the Radiothon frequencies with special in-studio guests across all programs, reimagined giveaways and visits from some of Perth’s incredible artistic personalities.
