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.

The survey closes on Friday 28 April and is being managed by the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia and McNair Ingenuity Research, so you can be assured that your individual responses will remain confidential.

It’s a no-brainer that keeping Melbourne's diverse community radio stations on air is vital for the soul of our city, but them bills, they gotta get paid. To help out, a posse of much-loved community radio presenters are putting on a big, bold night to raise funds for 3CR at the Bella Union on Thursday 27 April. Kick off is at 7pm and the evening includes Kate n Suzy from LazyWednesday spinning tracks, comedy with Fiona Scott-Norman, the official launch of the second edition of Ian McFarlane's The Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop, and a live Superfluity show. Tix and full line-up here. BUT WAIT there's more! You can also get along to a great line up at the Northcote Social Club and support that station at the same time - too easy! Party for your right to fight! Sunday 30 April, 1.30pm at the Northcote Social Club, 301 High Street, Northcote, featuring Ekranoplans, Winter Sun and BJ Morriszonkle. Book tickets and get more information online now.
