Town wel­comes 88FM back

Isis Town and Country - - News -

DIG­NI­TARIES and res­i­dents have joined mem­bers of Pilot­light Pro­duc­tions to cel­e­brate the open­ing of 88FM Pilot­light Ra­dio.

The com­mu­nity ra­dio sta­tion re­turned to the air­waves last Tues­day af­ter the orig­i­nal Red Dirt Ra­dio 88FM stopped op­er­at­ing six months ago.

Pilot­light pres­i­dent Tony Carey said the sta­tion promised to be the “voice of Childers”.

Mr Carey said it would of­fer a mix of new and clas­sic hits, com­bined with songs and sto­ries from lo­cals seek­ing to de­velop their “on-air” skills as record­ing artists, voiceover talent and ra­dio drama.

The ra­dio sta­tion broad­casts within a 5km ra­dius from the orig­i­nal premises at 94 Churchill St, but the com­pany has plans to widen the broad­cast and ex­plore op­tions for dig­i­tal on­line stream­ing.
