Service information

We love meeting listeners - if you see our Outside Broadcast bus near you, come over and say g'day! Sadly because of the curreent social distancing, we can't get out and around as we'd like. We'll be back out and around the community again as soon as we can do so safely.

Why not call the studio and say g'day or make a request instead? Call (02) 45 899 899 or you can text a request on 0427 899 899

We don't currently have any Outside Broadcasts scheduled - why not have us broadcast from your function/promotion/event?
