We’re getting ready to launch 3CR’s Radiothon … support ‘Community Powered Radio’ in June 2021! We’re so proud of our supporters and can’t wait to hear from you all as we raise critical funds to keep the station going for another year. Tax deductible and for the community, YOUR donation will power independent community media that drives dissent and creates change. Artwork by Sam Wallman.
Behind Closed Doors is a new show providing a safe space to explore the world of sex work. Your peer hosts will chat with a wide variety of guests, focusing on those voices that are rarely heard. We’ll talk to workers and allies alike, making sure to always put the interests of sex workers first. Our aim is to talk WITH people - not at them! If you’d like to know more, or even feature on our show, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And be sure to listen in live Thursdays 6-6.30pm or anytime online.
Workers will rally right around the country on Wednesday 10 April and at 3CR we'll be bringing listeners live coverage of the Melbourne rally. Be sure to turn up, or tune in, to demand greater equality for all workers. Can't make it? Tune in. At the rally? Listen to our coverage. And don't forget - our union programs are the backbone of our station, bringing you workers' voices and struggles across a great array of weekly shows - Concrete Gang, Stick Together, MUA, Fire Up, Solidarity Breakfast, and Asia Pacific Currents. Plus our strong union affiliates ETU, AMWU and NUW are also out doing the hard yards for workers' rights. Get active to #ChangeTheRules this week!

The community of passionate members that founded 3CR made some tough decisions. They committed themselves and a growing community of listeners to back their vision of owning our station, and remaining independent of government or corporate influence. They did this by fundraising brick by brick, with working bees, door knocking and on-air drives and it is with the surety of this ownership that 3CR survives today. We are evolving and growing with the challenges of our times, driven by the energy, politics and passion of our volunteers and members who turn up and do the work - week in, week out. And we need your commitment to keep us on air. Show your support during Subscriber Drive 11-17 February 2019. Feed Radical Radio - subscribe now.
