The annual Triple R Radiothon is almost upon us, which means a chance for listeners to show their support for the station by subscribing. This year’s Radiothon runs from August 12 to August 21 and is themed ‘Choose Your Destination’. Throughout the 10-day event, Triple R will take us on a trip through travel and holiday themed sounds, and listeners can expect to hear stories of why subscribers make Triple R their destination of choice.

Triple R is listener-funded radio and as a fully independent non-profit community station. They rely entirely on subscriptions from those who love to listen. Equipped with a team of over 200 volunteers, Triple R manages to produce live and local content 24/7, and plays an unparalleled role in Melbourne’s music, art and cultural landscapes.

You can subscribe to the station at any time, but during Radiothon you have the extra incentive of the chance to win some great prizes, including a year’s supply of Mountain Goat Beer, tickets and accommodation for the Meredith Music Festival, a $2000 gift card to Readings and an Avanti bike, to name a few. Categories of subscription vary from Full ($75) to Passionate ($125) to Concession ($40) with specialist subscriptions for bands, DJs and businesses.
