November 2017

Dear Eastside Radio Supporter,


It’s been another incredible year here on Eastside Radio and once again we’ve set the bar high for all we’ve wanted to achieve.

In addition to broadcasting 84 programs a week, the highest number of shows on any community radio station around the country, we’ve embraced the podcast revolution and launched our own series looking at HIV in the year 2017 titled How Much Do You Know? We continue to place such importance on everything we do via our website and although social media continues to find new ways to engage us we believe the future of our station still lies on the radio.

It’s been encouraging to see new episodes of our radio plays Sonic Tales hit the airwaves and podcast online and we just love all the people from the Windgap Foundation who make Making Airwaves an award winning show. Global Rhythms celebrated 5 years too which was a fantastic effort given the challenges with putting on a major outdoor event in Sydney. We look forward to seeing you all and then some more in 2018!

And so, once again we’re teaming up with Barnardos Australia to make a difference to children in need this Xmas. For every new or renewing supporter of Eastside Radio we’ll give a gift to one of the kids of Barnardos. You give to us and we give to them. It’s that simple but that important.

We’ve still got plenty of tickets to Bluesfest, Sydney Festival 2018, WOMADelaide, Monkey Baa Theatre, Event Cinemas and gifts from Australian Museum, Audio Technica, and The Coffee Roaster to name a few for many lucky supporters…

PLUS all supporters will be invited to an exclusive preview screening at the Chauvel in January 2018 and you’ll also receive an exclusive limited edition CD of Global Rhythms Live 2017.

So show your love of Eastside radio by renewing your support this Xmas.

And remember your support of Eastside Radio will ensure we give an additional gift and make a difference this Xmas to the children of Barnardos!

Thanks for listening to and supporting what we know is the best station in Sydney. Have a Merry Xmas and remember to tune in, turn out and sign up!

Yours sincerely,

Tony Smythe

Managing Director
