Each quarter, the station holds its induction session for new volunteers.

It gives a very good insight into community radio the rules and regulations of broadcasting especially as it applies to City Park Radio.

It also outlines our volunteering policies and provides good details for those aspiring to be presenters.

It is also a good refresher for current presenters.

So whether you are a member wanting to know more, wanting to be a volunteer or a budding presenter, the session starts at 1pm in our Studio D.

Due social distancing requirements, numbers are limited. Please let the office know if you are attending.


Each quarter, CPR holds a public meeting to discuss the station and programming matters.

It is part of our process to receive feedback on our operations and perhaps discover areas we can involve the community and extend ourselves with programming for the community.

The meeting will start at 10am in the Albert Hall Atrium .  COVID hygiene and social distancing will be observed.

The new programming sub committee for 2020/2021 will also be selected at this meeting.

Are you super at meeting and greeting, answering the phone and performing some office work?

City Park Radio is looking for a couple of volunteers to be the face of the station during office hours on Mondays and Friday and you won’t be asked to leap tall buildings in a single bound, nor climb ladders.

Linda & Barbara are calling time on their office volunteering .. and City Park Radio appreciates and values their contribution over the past years.

So if you have welcoming face, and a bark that will only scare dogs…. come and join the team … one day a week 9.30-3pm

Phone the office on 6334 3344 — during office hours of course.

VALE John Doyer

City Park Radio is mourning the loss of our friend and Life Member John Doyer.

John’s first program was on 7th December 1986, when he was one of the first presenters with Launceston’s new community radio station 7LTN-FM. Like all of our early presenters, he had to climb several flights of stairs in the Alanvale TAFE College at Newnham to reach the broadcast studio, an indication of his dedication to the cause.

John’s final program for City Park Radio was to present Sunday Afternoon Music on 10th July 2016. Over those 30 years, John presented many specialist programs as well as general music. His many hundreds of hours of broadcasting would have reached countless listeners with his beautiful rich, deep voice.

His first love was jazz, and whenever you listened to a John Doyer Jazz Spectrum program, you’d be assured of an informative and entertaining show presented with passion and enthusiasm.

Vale John Doyer, and thank you.

Do you remember the glorious “Our Path”, which was performed at the Gorge in 2001?

Or the oh-so-witty “Poxed” from Tasmanian Theatre Company?

Or when the mighty “Tamar Tidings” was performed on a barge on kanamaluka/Tamar River?

Meet Launceston’s Stella Kent – an AWGIE-award winning playwright – as part of Conversations with Friends of Theatre North.

This discussion was recorded in August by arrangement with Theatre North.

City Park Radio will replay this talk on Monday 7th September at 4.04pm in place of our regular program Arts Alive


In Season Three, Health Speak goes beyond the hand hygiene to work out what other key skills we need to live WELL during a pandemic (with others and in our own minds)!
Penny Terry is out in the community, into businesses and chats with experts to see what people are doing to ‘deal’ with this pandemic, what works and what doesn’t, as we all do our best to live through it.
We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll remember and we’ll learn, as we up-skill, in those life-skills that are crucial right now.
By the end of the season , hopefully you’ll have a full COVID-kit, bursting with tools to help you get on with life.
Hear it on Wednesdays in September at 4.30pm … or find them on the podcast page
