Begging time




It’s that time again. For those of you in Melbourne, or streaming your favourite radio station around the globe, it’s the season when the best public radio station in the country (if not the world!) goes begging. 3RRR is having its annual radiothon in order to stay on air for another year. Here are some reason why I support the R’s:

• they play good music
• they have great talk content – with no cash for comment
• they have fostered both local music and on air talent – including Melbourne blogaratis’s own Ms Fits, which in my opinion makes the world a much better place
• no playlists and no ads (though there is some sponsorship but usually from things you want to know about like gigs, films and community groups)
• a few years ago they put ethics before income and said no to sponsorship from the casino music venue (even though it had some fab bands playing) – you gotta love media with integrity!
• tuning in when you are stuck in traffic decreases incidences of road rage
• if we don’t subscribe, they can’t pay the bills (and inside info tells me they are having mucho trouble doing that at the moment) and if they went off air it’d be a bloody tragedy

Oh and the chance of you winning some great prizes, now or throughout the year and about a zillion time more likely than being struck by lightening, or winning lotto.

And finally – it’s a much sounder investment than what I found in my inbox today:
