PBS 106.7FM annual Radio Festival begins today

The PBS 106.7FM annual Radio Festival and fundraiser begins today and will run until Sunday 31 May.
2020 theme ‘You Can’t Stop The Music’ to reflect that the station continues to strive to bring listeners the best emerging, independent, specialist and underrepresented music 24-hours a day, 365 days a year as it has for over four decades.
From Monday 18 May to Sunday 31 May supporters can renew their annual PBS membership, or simply make a donation via the PBS website, during the station’s biggest online and on air fundraiser of the year.
During the week the station will broadcast tales from PBS’ past, cherished memories, guest appearances and favourite PBS presenters sharing their thoughts on the many, many benefits of being a PBS member including, of course, a treasure trove of prizes.
Acid Country Presenter, David Heard, says, “PBS has supported the Melbourne music community for over 40 years. Over that time most of the station’s income has been derived from sponsorship and membership.
“With many businesses closed due to COVID-19, most of our traditional sponsors are not in a position to support us at this time. Therefore, it is important for our survival that listeners sign up as members and that current members renew.
“Many people affected by the current restrictions are finding a sense of normality in listening to PBS. I urge them all to dig deep and support us with memberships and/or donations during our 2020 Radio Festival. You Can’t Stop The Music!”
Sam Teskey, of The Teskey Brothers, says,”PBS has spun The Teskey Brothers since we first started releasing music in 2016. We definitely wouldn’t have had such a good start without their early support. It’s really important that this great radio station can continue to support bands like us forever so please sign up to be a member during this year’s Radio Festival.”
