Breakfasters: 3CR's Radiothon With Pilar Aguilera
There's a symbiotic relationship that exists between a community and community radio - and it’s this relationship that's seen 3CR thrive over the last 45 years, 3CR Chairperson Pilar Aguilera tells Breakfasters. Pilar dives back to when she started volunteering at 3CR in 1976, the same year the station flicked the switch on its first broadcast. From the start, she explains, 3CR have championed radical and progressive programming, as well as the voices of marginalised communities. Forty-five years on, 3CR are running their annual Radiothon fundraiser highlighting “Community Powered Radio” and the importance of alternative and community voices. 3CR’s Radiothon is on now till 20 June.
