Radiothon 2023

1-31 May 2023

From 1-31 May, we’re asking you to EMBRACE YOUR STATION by subscribing and donating to 3MBS during Radiothon.

3MBS is so much larger than the volunteers and staff who broadcast and work from our Abbotsford studios. For nearly 50 years, 3MBS has encompassed a broad community of musicians and artists, providing them with a platform to share unique, local content with you, our treasured community of listeners.

Radiothon is the time to embrace this vast 3MBS family! We’ll be welcoming one of your favourite artists to talk or perform live-to-air each day in May and honouring one of Australia’s leading composers, Elena Kats-Chernin AO.

We hope you’ll join us when we broadcast from the Arts Centre Melbourne Forecourt or join our volunteers for a tour of the station.

Our listeners came out in force to support us during last year’s Radiothon, and this year we’re aiming to grow our subscriber community even more with an ambitious target of raising $250,000 this Radiothon.

Once again, arts organisations and local businesses have embraced 3MBS and shown their support by contributing prizes towards Radiothon.

Daily prize packs will be given away each day of the campaign and everyone who subscribes or resubscribes during Radiothon will receive one of our brand-new 3MBS bumper stickers and go into the draw to win one of the marvellous major prizes.

All artists who take out a Muso subscription during Radiothon will go into the draw to win one of the major prizes AND one of the superb Muso prizes.
