Subscribe to CPR
Why subscribe to a community radio station when you can listen for free?
Community radio is a viable alternative to all other forms of radio. Radio has changed over the decades – I remember a time when you could tune in to an album show on commercial radio and hear the latest album in its entirety. Such programs will probably never happen again on commercial radio. Ratings do not dictate what is played on community radio, and the diversity in programming is what makes listening to City Park Radio such a unique experience. Volunteers in community radio bring an incredible depth of knowledge, and it’s their enthusiasm that is the driving force of our station.
Consider the more than 20 different cultures that you can hear on CPR – informing and educating as well as entertaining. Our station provides the freedom for our children and adults, young and old, to express their imagination and share their ideas. We play music that people may not have heard before. Our station should be a driving force for Launceston’s local music and arts scene. We should be a source of knowledge and communication for everyone living in our listening area. All are reasons why you need to be supporting your local community station.
Community Radio celebrates the community. Our community is the place where we live, work and play. It has a value beyond dollars. We help each other out when we need a hand and we enrich our lives by making friends with our neighbours. As a community radio station, we need to be involved with our community, supporting it and thinking about what it needs, then working on providing it. Why don’t you ring the station and see what you can do to help us achieve this objective.
The presenters on CPR all share a passion for music and informative radio, but it is the membership who is the lifeblood of the station. That’s a big responsibility. Becoming a subscriber shares that responsibility. You are making a powerful statement about what you want to hear on radio, and what sort of community you want to live in.
Annual Membership: one low cost for everyone – $45 p.a. (July-June)
