Dear listeners,

Radiothon is our major fundraiser of the year. We’re counting on you to support your local, independent community radio station. Your subscriptions during Radiothon provide us with more than a third of our operating costs, and your support is vital to the continued existence of BayFM.

This last year, your support has enabled us to:

– Produce and present 68 music, magazine and specialty programs by over 100 volunteer presenters

– broadcast live updates from Bentley

– live outside broadcast of Bluesfest to a national audience

– engage young and budding broadcasters in creative expression via the Youth Media Hub

– live outside broadcast of Boomerang Festival to a national audience

– training and career development for dozens of passionate broadcasters

– develop a new BayFM website

– Share high quality, relevent, local interest stories, events and interviews

– we support and media sponsor some of the top festivals and events in the region

– Keep our volunteers and members on-air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to share music, stories, arts, news, literature, interviews, inspiration and ideas.

This only happens because of YOU, and the support of hundreds of volunteers, listeners and sponsors.
