Frasercoast FM 107.5

I have now been with the Radio for almost 2 yrs and time has moved so quickly.After training I was given a late shift from  9pm to midnight firstly as a regulat on Thursdays and also rotated on the same slot on Saturdays ( my co learner has now got the show permanently and doing great) I was successful in applying for a Thursday afternoon show 3m -6pm) and thoroughly enjoy doing it and managing to get a few phone calls ( Annie is my advert reader and phone call answerer ) Today we attended a presentation for long serving members and it was also a great chance to meet other presenters.Quite a lot turned up including local MP and the Mayor of Hervey Bay.I managed to “find” a write up of of what the Stations about….

Fraser Coast FM 107.5 is a “volunteer powered” community radio station financially supported by the Fraser Coast community through donations, memberships, sponsorships and community support for station fundraising activities.Entirely managed and operated by volunteer directors, managers and workers, Fraser Coast FM 107.5 does not pay any salaries or wages.While eligible to apply for equipment grants from federal and state government funding bodies to sustain technical broadcasting capacity, Fraser Coast FM 107.5, however, relies on support from the local community to fund its operating expenses .Fraser Coast FM 107.5 is the registered business name of Fraser Coast Community Radio Inc.

Because we are wholly dependent on volunteers,people who are currently on Job Search (a govt initiative) are utilized by the station and are very helpful in the running of theradio.Anyone can join us and for a small fee can be trained into budding Djs ! the instructor is a lovely man who will put you on the right track he gave me and my co-learner Paul a certificate telling us he s not come across anyone like us !!
