Friday 12 August - Sunday 21 August

RTRFM Studios

Perth community radio station RTRFM’s annual subscriber drive RADIOTHON returns this Friday 12 August – Sunday 21 August. This year, we’re asking listeners to COME TO THE PARTY and support the local radio station that supports local artists, local musicians and local issues.

The festivities will kick off at 6am on Breakfast with Caitlin and last for 10 days, finishing on Sunday August 21 after the conclusion of Sunday Morning Coming Down at 12 noon. Throughout the 10-day Radiothon extravaganza, the RTRFM studios will be inundated with special guests across the grid – from appearances of former presenters to live performances from local musicians, with shenanigans and prizes aplenty in between.

This year’s first prize is the Ultimate Festival Experience, a double pass to Southbound, St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Camp Doogs, Nannup Music Festival, Fairbridge Festival, Breakfest and Groovin The Moo.

Subscribers also have the chance to win a smorgasbord of major prizes, including a $3,000 Home Solar Package courtesy of Infinite Energy, along with a collection of over 90 albums from RTRFM feature artists over the past 12 months.

RTRFM offers subscription packages for students and holders, bands, businesses, families, and offers special bonuses to Gold & Platinum subscribers. Each subscription category has its own associated major prize, while subscribers who pay for their subscription upfront will be eligible for daily prizes which will be announced in the coming weeks. The major prize draws will be drawn on Saturday 15 October  after the pledging period closes.

RTRFM’s dedicated team of phone room volunteers will take listener subscriptions and donations throughout Radiothon period. Listeners can also subscribe online at

RTRFM is a not-for-profit independent radio station that survives only through the support of listeners by way of subscriptions and donations. Money raised from Radiothon makes up more than a third of RTRFM’s operating income and enables us to continue producing high-quality music & talks programming year- round.

Radiothon is an annual tradition and the biggest event on RTRFM’s busy event calendar. It coincides with the RTRFM Radiothon Party, a celebration of all things community radio and local music, where 20 local acts will take over four spaces in Northbridge: The Bird, Ezra Pound, the State Theatre Centre Underground Foyer & Studio Underground, with full details to be announced later this week.

Further information on Radiothon 2016, including the list of prizes and information on how to volunteer, is available here.
