For progressive people around the world it's been a crap start to the year. Trump is rolling out his racist agenda, inspiring increased racial, religious and gender-based hatred across the globe. It really is time to rally together to fight for a better world. There is power in numbers, and there is power in independent, community-run media. Join the swelling number of people fighting back by becoming a member of your radical, activist radio station. Show us your love and subscribe to 3CR.

3CR’s annual Radiothon is coming from 1–14 June - it's time for you to Activate The Airwaves!

In a political landscape where media barons and mining magnates have been known to make or break governments, it’s crucial that we get information that’s unfiltered by corporate interests. For almost 40 years, 3CR Community Radio has staked out a vital place on the airwaves, allowing us to bring news, analysis, music and the voices of literally hundreds of community groups to the people of Melbourne 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

3CR Radiothon is in full swing, and we have a whole bunch of Fundraiser's coming out to help you Activate the Airwaves. We know it's winter, but the revolution will not be televised - so rug up, get out and get political!
