Beyond the Bars 2015

Tune in to Beyond the Bars in 2015 to hear Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander prisoners on the airwaves. The project features radio shows broadcast live from six Victorian prisons during NAIDOC Week 6-10 July 2015. ‘The main purpose of these broadcasts,’ explains Koori Survival Show broadcaster Gilla McGuinness, ‘is to connect our people in the prison system back to family and culture on the outside during NAIDOC Week.’ Download the poster.

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!
