RTRFM and researchers from Monash and Griffith University (in collaboration with the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia and the Community Broadcasting Foundation) are currently conducting a study looking at the relationship between community music radio and Australia’s music and creative industries. They are looking for listeners to the station with an interest in the music programming for focus groups to be conducted between Tuesday 9 July and Thursday 11 July, running for about 2 hours at RTRFM in Mount Lawley.
