Over ten days Radiothon listeners are encouraged to tune in, subscribe and show us the love. There are plenty of reasons to subscribe – a bounty of daily prizes will be up for grabs and everyone who subscribes during Radiothon will go in the major prize draw.
Our team of wonderful presenters will be working overtime to bring you back to back live shows, with even more helpers in the office answering phones and prepping your subscriber packs. Radiothon is a big deal for the station! It’s our major fundraiser for the year and helps us pay the bills and keep the lights on. This year we are working to raise money to go Digital On Demand, which means you’ll be able to listen back to your favourite shows easy peasy.
