Yes folks, it's that time of year again where the 3MDR Radiothon Train gets rolling down the tracks for another 2 week subscriber drive, departing on Monday 16th October and arriving at the Big Gig @ Sooki Lounge on Sunday 29th October.
If you signed up in October 2016 it's time to renew your subscriptions and memberships to help keep your favourite community radio station on the air for another 12 months.
3MDR has a busy 12 months ahead with an impending move due to our current premises being demolished in early 2018. 3MDR has been working on securing new studio space and is preparing for a costly relocation which will enable 3MDR to expand its operations and provide even more opportunities for members of our communities.
The Radiothon train will be loaded with some fabulous cargo for you to win! Check out our Radiothon 2017 page to see the details of all the prizes and links to our generous prize donors.
