Community radio station needs support

Recommended Posts

As 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. PBS FM 106.7 is a community radio station based in Melbourne, Australia and we would really appreciate your involvement.

Please support PBS FM by going to our website, pbsfm.org.au, and satisfy your desire for everything world music.

There are a number of awesome shows on PBS 106.7FM devoted to what you want. For reggae and dancehall tune in to Chant Down Babylon - on Saturdays at 5pm (EST) hosted by Jessie I.

For the fans of worldwide traditional acoustic music, tune in at 3pm (EST) on Sundays for Global Village with Roger Holdsworth.

If it’s something to break out the moves to, your best bet is Planetary Chaos at 11am (EST) on Fridays with Systa BB who serves up a big plate of global dance. Flight 1067 To Africa, for those who hold African music close to their heart, is the one to catch on Sundays at 5pm (EST) with Stani Goma.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention.
