Radiothon 2020

THERE’S NO STOPPING US THIS 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.
