Radiothon 2017

The corporate media is in crisis. We've always known that corporate media owners prioritise profit over the service of independent journalism, and that this has dire consequences for democracy and social justice. 3CR was formed 41 years ago to counter capitalist media, and we are delivering radio for the people, by the people. In 2017 3CR is Radio for Change. Radio for Change aims to capture the global mood of resistance, and during our annual Radiothon fundraiser we ask all our supporters to donate so that we can stay radical and independent.

Congratulations to the Concrete Gang for taking out the 2015 Spirit of 3CR Award, and well deserved it is. The Concrete Gang have been broadcasting weekly on 3CR for almost 40 years making sure that CFMEU workers are informed about their industrial rights, safety and encouraging a great culture of looking after one another at work. And full marks for comic delivery, making what could be a dry topic down right hilarious.

Save Radio Adelaide

The future of Radio Adelaide, Australia’s longest running community radio station, is in doubt. The University of Adelaide sold Radio Adelaide’s home at 228 North Terrace to help fund its new Medical School. After 12 months of review and costings, time is running out to relocate Radio Adelaide before the building is demolished. 3CR encourages all of our supporters to get behind our sister station's campaign,  #‎SaveRadAd‬!

Joe Hill Tribute Benefit for 3CR

Thanks to some friends of 3CR and the Lomond Hotel for organising this fundraiser and giving us a chance to hear some uplifting music in the spirit of Joe Hill, IWW organiser and influential songwriter. A man who inspired Woody Guthrie, Paul Robeson, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen and countless others. $10 waged/ $5 concession.

Tune in to 3CR Breakfast from Monday 16 November to Saturday 28 November between 8-8:30am for regular reports, interviews and commentaries in the lead up to the People's Climate March (Friday 27 November, State Library, 5.30pm) and COP21 (the UN conference on climate change in Paris on 30 November).

On Sunday 1st November, five members of the fascist group United Patriots Front (UPF) gained entry to the premises of 3CR Community Radio and filmed throughout the building without permission. In an effort to intimidate the station and its programmers, they then posted the video on their Facebook page.
