Wilcannia river radio 103.1FM

The Central School now has its own program time slot on WRR. Teacher Frances and students Christine Hunter, Katrina Johnson and Julie Bugmy have chosen special music to accompany recent news of events and celebrations at school. In time these students will also learn how to use the outdoor recording equipment and pre-record programs.

The students’ program can be heard every Wednesday between 1.45-2.45. Tune in!  This is a great opportunity for parents and family to hear school news and to support new skill development in their children.

Talking Tucker with Maari Ma’s dietician is now a fortnightly event occurring on Tuesdays at 2.30pm. The next session will be on Tuesday 10 September with a focus on healthy summer drinks and icy poles. Elisa is replacing Cher.

Josephine’s program can be heard on Friday afternoons.

As a community radio we are also looking at other program opportunities volunteers can offer.

New Staff at WRR

WRR welcomes Charles Johnson as our new DJ (‘CJ the DJ’). Charles is enjoying the work and would encourage others who may have an interest in radio and music.

We now have 3 DJs- all with their own style of music ensuring that all tastes in music are met. Tune in to listen DJ Shillo, DJ Ally (from the Mallee) and CJ-the-DJ. Live broadcast hours are 8.00am-4.00pm.

We currently have 2 vacancies for part time DJ positions of 20 hours per week. No experience is necessary as on-the-job training is provided.

Our partnership with 2BH HillFM

Damien Fisher from 2BHFM kindly offered WRR the opportunity to stream live the recent Rugby league Grand Final to 103.1FM  This was a fantastic opportunity for those in the community unable to get into the Hill to hear the game as it occurred!

Thank You, Jacob

Jacob - IT officer at the Central Darling Shire Council - provided invaluable help in setting up the technology to make the streaming possible. Many thanks Jacob!!
