Now on PBS
Since 1979, community broadcaster PBS 106.7FM has been an integral player in Melbourne’s diverse music community – with more than 80 specialist music programs ranging from soul to garage to country to jazz – PBS is dedicated to nurturing, inspiring and championing Melbourne’s diverse music community. You can also find us on Digital Radio, web-streaming, PBS-on-demand and at events around town like Soul A-Go-Go, Rock-A-Bye-Baby music sessions and many others…
We strive to achieve:
- A thriving, diverse music scene, particularly for under-represented music
- Content with integrity and quality
- An engaged and involved music community
- Sustainable operations
PBS matters because we support musicians and artists from the ground up. We are passionately committed to seeking out, discovering and presenting diverse and independent music.
Our announcers are music-loving folk who volunteer their energy, music knowledge and vast record collections to prepare in-depth, specialist, music-centric programs. Every announcer has complete autonomy over what they play. Their programs are a reflection of their ever-evolving musical tastes, enthusiasms and discoveries – a musical journey which is shared intimately with the audience.
The station is run by more than 400 dedicated volunteers and a small team of professional staff.
With an estimated 295,000 weekly listeners across Melbourne, PBS depends on its loyal community to support the station’s activities through financial memberships and donations as well as sponsorship. This allows us to pursue our shared vision with integrity and independence.
