ATTENTION ⚠️ all you LOYAL listeners out there! The building that houses our FM transmitter 📡 has a planned power outage tomorrow from between 7am and 5pm ⚡️🔌 This is going to impact our FM transmission so you might not hear us for a little while on your radios 📻 BUT we’re fairly certain our digital radio, web and app streams will still function as they should, and remain uninterrupted 👍🏿 We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused in your LIVE and DEADLY listening experience. We'll be black on air as normal once the maintenance is done and dusted.
These rad LEGENDS @thundamentals have already raised 5 thousand bucks 😳🙏🏿 for Koori Radio 📻 with their #gotloveinitiative ❤️ T-shirt campaign. All the profits 💰 from the sale of this t-shirt run go to help us run the station and the special projects we produce - like the Young, Black and Deadly youth music mentorship program, and our Klub Koori events - which provide a much needed platform for emerging Indigenous artists to perform in venues that can be a real challenge for black fellas to get gigs at, and where members of our community can attend without experiencing discrimination because of the threat of racism. The struggle is real. Good on u fellas for chipping in. Shirts are just $40, link in bio. It’s also just in time 4 #ausmusictshirtday so u can show your ❤️ for your favourite 📻 station, support local music & 👀 deadly at the sametime 🖤⚡️❤️🙏🏿 It’s WIN WIN WIN #winning #liveanddeadly
