1WAY FM is Canberra’s Christian Community Radio station, it is the only Christian Radio Station in Canberra and the surrounding regions. In case you aren’t aware, community radio stations are governed by very different laws to commercial stations. The most significant difference is that a community station is restricted to 5 minutes of sponsorship (their version of advertising) each hour. That means that you can enjoy more music! It also means that a community radio station such as 1WAY FM doesn’t have the capacity to attract the advertising revenue that a commercial station has. Consequently, community radio stations around the country (including 1WAY FM) rely on donations to remain on air!
1WAY FM is currently running their annual fundraiser – Share-a-thon 2011: Growing Stronger, Reaching Further. They are seeking to raise $120,000 towards the annual running costs of the station. If you have the means, please prayerfully consider supporting this great missional organisation!
