Dig deep for RTRFM’s Radiothon this August

13 Jul

Local community radio station RTRFM will once again hold their annual Radiothon this August.

RTRFM relies on community support to power the station throughout the year. This year’s garden theme encourages listeners to dig deep and support the station they love by subscribing or donating to RTRFM during Radiothon.

RTRFM’s 10-day fundraising drive will commence with Breakfast with Caitlin at 6am on Friday, 14 August, continuing through to the end of Sunday Morning Coming Down at 12 noon on Sunday, 23 August.

RTRFM’s huge Radiothon Party will kick off the first weekend of Radiothon and will see the station program 23 live acts and DJs across five Northbridge venues on Saturday, 15 August.

During Radiothon, all RTRFM programs across the grid will feature special guests, live performances, interviews, hijinks and prizes aplenty.

Listeners who subscribe or donate to RTRFM during Radiothon will reap what they sow; automatically entering the draw to win a huge array of major and category prizes, as well as daily prize packages and spot prizes.

This year’s first prize is the ultimate WOMADelaide experience, thanks to The Hills Cider Company. This once in a lifetime trip includes backstage passes for you and a friend to this iconic four-day festival, accommodation at one of Adelaide’s best boutique hotels, plus return flights to Adelaide. To help you hold onto that post WOMAD glow, The Hills Cider Company will be sending you home with six cartons of cider to share with your friends!

Subscribers could also win a $3,000 home solar package, thanks to Infinite Energy and the RTRFM Feature Bounty, containing all of the RTRFM Feature Albums and Local Features from the past 12 months. Major and category prizewinners will be drawn after pledge payments close on Saturday, 10 October 2015.

Subscribers that pay for their subscription upfront (rather than pledging) will also enter the draw for that day’s daily prize package, announced on air each morning at 6am and online via Winners will be drawn the following day and announced on air between 8-9am.

RTRFM’s dedicated phone room and studio volunteers will take listener subscriptions and donations at all hours of the day, so you can make your contribution to The Sound Alternative whenever suits you best.

RTRFM is an independent, non-profit organisation that relies on the financial contributions of its listeners by way of subscriptions and donations to operate. Revenue raised during Radiothon makes up approximately 30% of the station’s annual operating income.

The ongoing support of listeners during Radiothon ensures that RTRFM can continue to deliver unique programs and events, and remain a high-quality alternative to mainstream media in Perth.

Dig Deep and and support RTRFM this Radiothon by subscribing or donating online at or by calling (08) 9260 9210.
