Open Day 2016

THIS Sunday 9 October from 12-4pm the station opens up its doors to the community and invites you to come in and celebrate 40 years of radical radio. Join us for an awesome afternoon tea, roving musicians, special on-air broadcasts and the opportunity to step into the studio and get behind the mic. Face painting for the kids, stalls, rolling station tours and the launch of the 3CR 40th birthday t-shirt. There'll be something for everyone! Getting to the station is easy, but parking around 21 Smith Street, Fitzroy, is very difficult and we strongly recommend that you walk, cycle or catch public transport to the day. See you there!

Keep Community Radio

The Federal Budget released on Tuesday 3 May contains cuts of $1.4m in funding that currently keeps community radio stations broadcasting on digital in five capital cities. If we don’t get those funds reinstated, community radio will get left behind on the AM/FM dial. Will you join the national community radio campaign to get these funds back, and ensure a digital future for 3CR and other community stations around the country? Add your voice here to the Keep the Community in Your Radio campaign.
