Love the music. Support the sound.

3MBS’s annual Radiothon returns to the airwaves this May! The 3MBS Board, staff and volunteers invite you to join us for a month long of specially curated broadcast events, programming and public appearances from your favourite fine music station.

This year’s theme – Love the Music. Support the Sound – acknowledges our commitment to producing quality broadcast programming that reaches all our listeners living in Melbourne and beyond. We want to ensure our broadcast is heard by all our listeners from all corners of the community. This is why we are taking our broadcast to the streets. Weekly throughout May our technical broadcast team and two of our on-air presenters will broadcast one live program from a different location around Melbourne. When we visit your neighbourhood, come out and say hello to our team!

Along with our regularly curated broadcast programming, many of Melbourne’s finest classical performers will be dropping by the station for live-to-air performances from our Lady Marigold Southey Performance Studio. Tune in every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday throughout May to 103.5FM during Morning Recital (10am) and hear your favourite talent on the airwaves. All current or renewed subscribers will also be invited to come to the station to attend one of these special performances.

Plus, our popular Top 100 will count down daily from 6-7pm Monday through Friday with our Classically Cheerful Works as voted by our listeners. Will your top cheerful work make the list? Tune to find out.

Finally, we open our station doors to the community during our Open Day event on Thursday 20 May from 10am – 4pm. Swing by that station located on the beautiful grounds of the Abbotsford Convent for a guided tour provided by one of our many volunteers. To comply with COVID-safe regulations as mandated by government and health officials, please pre-book your station tour:
