Radiothon is an annual tradition and the biggest event on RTRFM’s busy event calendar. It coincides with the RTRFMRadiothon Party, a celebration of all things community radio and local music, where 20 local acts will take over four spaces in Northbridge: The Bird, Ezra Pound, Tetsuo, the State Theatre Centre Underground Foyer & Studio Underground, with full details to be announced later this week.
