Radiothon 2016
3CR's Radiothon is on NOW and it's time to donate to keep independent, community-owned and community-controlled radio on the airwaves. It's our 40th birthday and we hope you can dig deep to support the programs and volunteers that keep the station going. Donate now! Read more, or download the poster.
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.
