3MBS Radiothon 2010 – support Melbourne’s music and arts scene

Our local independent fine music radio station – 3MBS 103.5FM – is about to commence its annual RADIOTHON – a 10-day celebration where we call for support from our listening community. 3MBS receives no funding from the government for its operations and relies purely on the financial support of sponsors and friends to raise the $1,000,000 it costs per year to keep the station running.

A new level has been created just so that we, as students, can give back in our own way. For $30, you can sign up for a year as a 3MBS Fresher. This means you get the monthly magazine (with programme details, artist interviews, etc.) mailed or emailed to you, and you get to be part of the 3MBS community.

Radiothon runs from Friday 7 – Sunday 16 May and there are tonnes of prizes to be won when you sign up to support 3MBS, including the major prize – a beautiful Bernstein piano donated by Bernie’s Musicland. Other prizes include ticket subscriptions to the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and more.

To sign up, call 9416 1035 to speak to one of our 230 friendly volunteers, or drop by in person to the studios – 1 St. Helier’s St, Abbotsford (at the Abbotsford Convent), where a party of food, drink and smiling faces will be ready to welcome you.

Support the station and sign up as a 3MBS supporter or call 9416 1035.
