FM 107.5 is about you, the community . When you wake up to when you go to sleep.
We tell your stories, play happy music and inform the community of things happening where you live.
A typical day (we’re using Monday as an example) is we begin with the weather important to farmers, community organizations and those who live in our listening footprint. We let you know about news in the area, sport and community events and we often congratulate organizations on their events and great work.
We tell stories by engaging community, The Animal Welfare League dropped by Monday Morning Forum with a boxer dog named Gus who is up for adoption .
“He’s a great dog for parents and kids and even the elderly . Kind and friendly with others. He was rescued by caring people and now he’s up for adoption with the Adopt Me programme on your fabulous radio station,’’ Ash who brought Gus in said.
The Adopt Me program has already found uncared for pets homes with a loving family ‘’It’s what we do here give community a helping hand and our listeners are warm and care,’’ Station Manager Farren Hotham said.

Mr Power said community events “We’re for all,’’ He cried as he told the story of a young boy who said his uncle had been someone to look up since he was born. These are stories about you and me.
