A Huge October for Independent Music Programming

Written by on 17 November 2022

October and November have been nothing short of phantasmagorical for our growing list of regional and rural radio broadcasters!

Partnering up to bolster the independent music platform, were no less than five FM and online stations. From across the Eastern States and Western Australia.

The additions bring our total broadcasting entities to twenty, and over 24 towers (including short-band relays).

To date, this tallies out our broadcast population, at an eye-watering 3,676,354 people!

Our focus remains with rural and regional, and 90% of our broadcast partners are located in regional towns.

Despite this our largest listener base is now Brisbane – through Switch Brisbane broadcasting on 1197 AM.

Between the populations of our two metropolitan broadcasters, 77.8% of our listeners are now in metropolitan areas, owing to the concentration of people living in Brisbane and Geelong.

We are most happy to welcome our latest suite of regional stations:

– Local Sounds Armidale,

– Local Sounds South Burnett,

– Gippsland FM,

– Memphis Mayhem Radio, and

– Radio Goolarri in Broome!
