As a sense of normalcy returns across Australia, there's never been a better time to support Australian music and the good folk that make it happen. This weekend, it's your last chance to join in the fun for PBS 106.7FM’s annual Radio Festival—its joyous theme ‘You Can’t Stop The Music' calling for a positive post-COVID future.
Known for bringing the best emerging, independent, specialist, and underrepresented music 24-hours a day, 365 days a year for over four decades, supporting PBS is a great way to keep the Melbourne music industry thriving.
Until Sunday 31 May, you can join up or renew your annual PBS membership, or simply make any donation via the PBS website, during the station’s biggest online and on air fundraiser of the year. With Collarts staff like Music Performance teacher Adam Rudegeair working as a PBS presenter, it's a real testament to their influence across the industry.
“PBS has supported the Melbourne music community for over 40 years. Over that time most of the station's income has been derived from sponsorship and membership. With many businesses closed due to COVID-19, most of our traditional sponsors are not in a position to support us at this time," explains Acid Country Presenter, David Heard.
"It's important for our survival that listeners sign up as members and that current members renew," he continues. "Many people affected by the current restrictions are finding a sense of normality in listening to PBS. I urge them all to dig deep and support us with memberships and/or donations during our 2020 Radio Festival. You Can't Stop The Music!”
With stacks of daily prizes are up for grabs for all tiered memberships including performers, businesses, pets, juniors, Friends for a Decade and Friends for Life, there's a bunch of reasons to check it all out.
