Eastside Radiothon

This week is Eastside Radio’s annual Radiothon, that time of the year where we ask you, our Eastside Radio listener to become an Eastside supporter and help us “Raise The Roof”.

We’ve heard from our listeners throughout the pandemic about how grateful you are to be able to turn to Eastside in your time of need and that we are still there Side by Side. We’re by no means out of the woods, but we’re all still here and we’re going to do what we do best and embrace our love of music. We’re going to Lift Spirits. Elevate. Uplift. Revitalise. And Raise The Roof!!!
