RTRFM’s asks for $40 for 40 years of quality broadcasting
40 years old and going strong, RTRFM has been one of the most consistent, loyal and fiercely independent supporter of arts, music and culture in Perth.
In RTRFM’s 40th year, they are asking their listeners to donate $1 for every year the station has been in operation. In doing so, each supporter will become a permanent part of their collective history, by having their name etched onto an honour board, to be housed in the station for the next 40 years and beyond.
Originally broadcasting as part of the University of Western Australia under the call sign 6UWA, RTRFM was the first FM Stereo radio station in Western Australia. 40 years later, the station is still broadcasting on 92.1, online and on the digital spectrum, giving West Australian audiences a different look at the world and the community.
RTRFM champions local music, arts and culture while staying fiercely independent. RTRFM is funded by their listeners and sponsors.
RTRFM has over 400 volunteers keeping the station alive, both on air and off and is heard by over 229,000 unique listeners monthly from around the world.
In their 40th year, they are calling out for a donation of $40; $1 for every year of the station.
There’s not much that $1 buys these days! $1 for each year of loyal, consistent support for the local community; $1 a year to give local musicians a place to call home, local artists the chance to showcase their art and to promote local culture and community in a homogenous media market.
