PBS-FM-106.7 posted a topic in Beatking RecommendsHeya, it’s Sarah KD from PBS FM (the Melbourne-Based community radio station) again. Just letting you know there is still a week left of PBS’s Radio Festival…Radio festival happens once a year at PBS FM. It is two weeks of the year that we ask you to dig deep and support the station. PBS FM gets no support from the government or any major organisation. We are independent, totally non-commercial and we only manage to stay alive thanks to listeners who are passionate about what we do becoming members. It costs PBS FM over $12 000 dollars to stay on air each week, that's a load of money! Without your hard-earned dollars there is no PBS. This Radio Festival please help keep PBS on-air by taking out a membership or making a small donation. You can read more about becoming a member here. I have been volunteering for PBS FM for a while now but only just became a member last night (I’m under 25 so it was only $25 for a year so I thought why not..). I’m pretty stoked because I got to pick 2 CDs of my choice, I got a discounter booklet, I’m in the draw to win a car (I really need one of those things) and….by supporting such a cause..I am attempting to even the score with some higher power, hopefully to rid myself of the bad luck I’m plagued by. Thank you for your ongoing support, we really do appreciate any help you can offer. Sarah KD! P.s. The PBS website wants some love too - pbsfm.org.au.
Community radio station needs support
PBS-FM-106.7 posted a topic in Beatking RecommendsAs you know, community radio exists so that people can listen to music they may not hear on commercial radio. Another thing you may know is that community radio stations are mostly not-for-profit organisations and very rarely have corporate funding therefore they rely on sponsorship, subscriptions and community support.
