3CR Film Fundraiser

Bring your friends for a movie night out at 3CR’s screening of the new political comedy ‘Pride’ on Thursday 6 November. Set in the Margaret Thatcher’s England in the summer of 84, ‘Pride’ is the story of how a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists join forces with the National Union of Mineworkers to raise money to support the strikers' families. 

Share a message and connect to community

These are strange and disconcerting times, and 3CR - as always - is focused on community inclusion, participation and cohesion in order to build a better world. We want to hear from you - whether you're a regular listener, programmer, or you've just found us on the AM dial. Send us a voice memo! Share a radical vision for the future, an inspiring thought for the day, information on a current campaign or your personal insight of the day. Send your short (less than 1 minute) voice memo to reception@3cr.org.au and we'll put it on the radio! 

3CR response to Covid-19

3CR has decided to close its doors to volunteers and guests from Monday 23 March as we try to do our part to minimise the spread of the coronavirus throughout the community. At the front of our minds, is protecting the most marginalised and vulnerable. But we are still here. And we’ll continue broadcasting, 24 hours a day, with radical, alternative content throughout this period – but things will sound a bit different. Some programmers will present their shows on the phone, and we’ll be finding creative ways to bring you our regular programming. So stay tuned, stay safe, and be kind to each other.

Feed Radical Radio Subscribe to 3CR in 2020

The start of 2020 heralded catastrophic conditions for communities and the natural environment right across Australia. It is devastating to see the direct impact of years of government inaction on climate change together with the extreme corporate greed. Now is the time to stand up and fight against ecological genocide. It is clear that only a mass mobilisation of people and communities will create the change necessary.The essence of any movement for social change is communication and information. Community radio provides a vital space for us to communicate and organise together free from vested corporate interests and the profit motive. Be part of the movement for change - become a member of Melbourne’s precious independent community media.
