Subscriber Drive 2019 - original artwork by Emily Floyd

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

Are we on a path to totalitarianism?
This week we're in conversation with Timothy Erik Strom, Jacob Grech and  Lizzy O'Shea; contemplating our political trajectory towards a state of totalitarianism. 
 
"... the democracies of the future will change their nature; the quaint old forms – elections, parliaments, supreme courts and all the rest – will remain but the underlying substance will be a new kind of totalitarianism."  Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited, 1958 
 
Join 3CR Wednesday Breakfast 7am - 8:30am September 26th, as the team discuss the current trajectory and future alternatives. LISTEN IN @: 855AM, 3CR Digital OR Streaming live https://www.3cr.org.au/streaming The future is not yet defined.
