3 Songs for 3CR - Nordanlaat

Each year The Boite and Music Sans Frontieres invite musicians and singers to donate 3 songs, in an acoustic concert at The Boite World Music Cafe, 1 Mark Street, North Fitzroy. Each year it’s a spectacularly creative and entertaining night of music that raises money for the 3CR Radiothon. In a year when significant music programs and broadcasters have been cut from national radio, the importance of shows like Music Sans Frontieres on broadcasters like 3CR cannot be overstated. It becomes harder and harder for local musicians to get a hearing! 3 Songs for 3CR is an opportunity to show support and ensure the healthy, ongoing life of Music Sans Frontieres on 3CR. Head here for more information and bookings.

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.
