A Message from Eastside Radio

Dear Eastside Radio Community,

We want to thank all our listeners, supporters and volunteers for their continued support through the COVID-19 situation.

Many people have contacted us and we’re flattered that our audiences – locally and nationally as well as internationally, appreciate our efforts to keep them informed and entertained during this crisis.

Especially for the many people self-isolating, we know that having our team of popular presenters, who many regard as family – as well as a great variety of music – is invaluable at a time like now.

Against a sea of social media the sound of a human voice is more than comforting.

We also want to assure you that we are ensuring all our presenters, staff and volunteers who are at the station, are being kept safe and healthy with industry practices in place.

Our programming is currently undergoing considerable changes and many of your favourite shows may be missing. Don’t worry, we’re simply pressing pause on these shows as we minimise the activity around the station. We aim to stay on air throughout this ordeal so that you can rely on us when you need.

So please, keep listening to the radio. 89.7FM. eastsidefm.org

Stay safe. Get stronger. Live longer.

Yours sincerely

Tony Smythe
Managing Director
Eastside Radio
