Upwey/Belgrave RSL, Yarra Ranges Life TV and 3MDR – Mountain District Radio – have formed a local partnership and will be LIVE streaming the dawn and mid-morning services from the RSL.
The services will be LIVE broadcast on 3MDR (97.1fm) and LIVE streamed via Yarra Ranges Life TV’s Facebook page at 6am and 10am.
The idea behind this partnership is to connect local residents to these services, who are not able to physically attend. The partnership is working with a number of local Aged Care Residences to have the LIVE stream beamed into their activity spaces for their residents to enjoy. This type of community connectedness activity is the backbone of community broadcasting and RSL community engagement.
“We see this as integral part of our role as community radio broadcasters. It’s really important to 3MDR that we create opportunities for our local residents to actively engage with the station and the wider community around them.” (3MDR President Pierre Rispoli)
"Our mission is to Inform, Engage and Entertain our audience; with a focus on promoting "Unity In Community". We are humbled to be able to partner with Upwey Belgrave RSL and 3MDR to produce this first for the Yarra Ranges - A LIVE Dawn Service Simulcast; both on Community Radio and vision on the Yarra Ranges LIFE TV's Facebook page." (Yarra Ranges Life TV Executive Producer Patrick Boucher)
Anyone with a Facebook login is welcome to stream the LIVE feed via Yarra Ranges Life TV’s Facebook page:
The 3MDR LIVE broadcast can be heard on 97.1fm or via web streaming at 3mdr.com
Upwey/Belgrave RSL would like to invite everyone to attend the ceremonies at the RSL – 1 Mast Gully Rd, Upwey.
