We've recently changed the audio format for our live stream in order to improve the quality and to support more devices and services such as iHeartRadio.
Unfortunately, this means we can no longer support Internet Explorer for listening to our live stream as it does not support the new format. Please see our Streaming Guide for alternative ways to listen to our live stream on your computer, mobile or smart speaker devices.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
RTRFM is The Sound Alternative: an independent, non-profit community radio station that provides an alternative voice for Perth through innovative music and talks programming. RTRFM provides a platform for local news and issues, with a strong focus on the arts, culture, social justice, politics and the environment. We champion local music and support musical diversity through 50+ specialist music programs and a huge program of events.
RTRFM is an independent, non-profit organisation that is primarily funded through the following avenues:
RTRFM relies on the financial contributions of its listeners to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Revenue raised during our annual Radiothon every August makes up 30% of our annual operating income.
The continued support of our listeners ensures that RTRFM can continue to deliver unique programs and events, and remain a high-quality alternative to mainstream media in Perth.
There are a variety of annual subscription packages available to suit your needs and budget.
By subscribing, you are ensuring that the community has access to a quality independent media source for all to enjoy.
Best of all, an RTRFM subscription includes many material benefits; including discounted/free entry to all RTRFM events, a subscriber discount card redeemable at Perth’s finest film, fashion, theatre and retail outlets and the chance to win on-air giveaways, including RTRFM Feature Albums and Local Features.
