What is Radiothon?

RadiothonLetterhead

Radiothon is the life blood of RTRFM. The money raised encompasses one third of our annual operating costs and is vital to the stability and continued broadcast of RTRFM.

In the past 12 months Radiothon 2013 has enabled us to:

  • Produce and present around 50 programs by over 250 volunteer presenters
  • Continue to improve and implement the new RTRFM Website and shop system.
  • Develop 14 events that showcased over a hundred local musicians, DJs and artists
  • Celebrate 21 years of In The Pines, 30 years of Drastic On Plastic and 15 years of Soulsides;
  • Produce high quality stories using a number of young and budding journalists, keeping your stories local and relevant;
  • Keep our members on air 24 hours a day 7 days a week to share with you their passion, music, arts, current affairs and ideas.

All of this and more is only achievable through the support of our equally passionate and loyal listeners, subscribers, donors and event goers….  YOU!  Your contribution helps RTRFM make Perth a more interesting, exciting and creative place to live.

This year our Radiothon will run from

Friday 15th August until Sunday 24th August

So join us in celebrating our station and sign up to keep us on air for another exciting year.
