It's Educational!

Radiothon is upon us again! Radiothon is Triple R’s annual subscription and donation drive. It’s the biggest, the greatest, and the most important time of all on the Triple R calendar. It’s our chance to celebrate the station and the wonderful community we’ve created, but it’s also the time when we ask you to help keep the school bells ringing at Triple R for another year by subscribing and donating to the station. Your support is vital.

For nearly half a century, Triple R has been on the airwaves, providing you with lessons greater than anything you might find in the classroom. The only way we’ve been able to do this is through you – the listener – supporting us and keeping us on the airwaves. You’ve allowed us to stay on air, remain truly independent, and provide a platform for music and ideas that may otherwise never be heard.

Our theme this year is ‘It’s Educational’, a throwback to our humble beginnings coming out of RMIT, but also a reminder to all that as a station, we’re here providing an education, every single day. We’re here to shape minds, form opinions, impart knowledge, and so much more.

Times are tough right now – from the pandemic to a cost of living crisis, we understand that life is difficult for many. Although the station’s sponsorship revenue has bounced back since the pandemic, the costs to run the station have greatly increased and continue to rise. In order for Triple R to continue offering listeners a genuine, intelligent and considered alternative on the airwaves, your subscriptions and donations this year are even more critical.

We really hope that you’ll enrol to the school of Triple R and become a Subscriber and Donor for Radiothon 2023.
