Gin Gin's radio station celebrates

GIN Gin’s community radio station celebrated one year on the airwaves yesterday.

The station was officially opened by Bundaberg Regional Council Mayor Lorraine Pyefinch on Australia Day 2009.

The station has enjoyed great support from local people and businesses, with locally trained presenters.

The station has 52 members, including 15 presenters broadcasting a wide range of music from 1920s vintage, jazz, country music and contemporary rock.

The station is looking to widen its free community services to include multicultural and indigenous programs and interviews.

The president of 104.9 FM said he was particularly interested to involve the local community as much as possible, and has invited representatives of any club or society to take advantage of the free services.

To get involved, phone the studio on 4157 1049 or email ginginsown104.9@gmail.com.
