1BTN Launches crowdfunding campaign!

As with any volunteer led organisation, funding is a daily challenge. After two and a half years, we need to ask for support from the community we serve.

Why we need your help

If we secure this vital financial help now, our plan to be a successful, self-sufficient and nationally recognised radio station becomes a reality. Meaning you continue to hear the best music on the airwaves, and the wider community benefits from our workshops, accredited courses and events.
