Right Now Radio 3CR “People Powered Radiothon” 6-19th June 2011

By Right Now Radio

From June 6-19 3CR is running its annual Radiothon. This is an opportunity to get involved, celebrate 3CR’s unique brand of community funded and driven radio and support Right Now Radio along the way.

3CR is a community-owned and volunteer driven Melbourne based station that has brought indigenous, women’s, ethnic, environmental, union and other community programs to listeners for 35 years.  3CR has 400 volunteer programmers presenting more than 130 programs on air each week including Right Now Radio.  Check out this great video promo, made by a wonderful 3CR volunteer here.

3CR operates free of corporate sponsorship, and relies on a diverse and committed team of volunteers to keep the station running. Everyone shares responsibility in keeping Right Now Radio and 3CR alive, from the hardworking broadcasters to listeners showing their support through their calls and donations.

As many of our listeners may know, Right Now Inc. is the umbrella organisation for Right Now Radio, which airs every Thursday at 6pm on 3CR.  Each week a diverse team of presenters facilitate dynamic and engaging discussion and debate focusing on current human rights issues as well as news, event info and interviews with people on the ground in human rights.

“There’s a great atmosphere at 3CR, with a really eclectic mix of people, opinions and ideas to keep you on your toes. I’ve loved being a presenter on Right Now Radio, it’s given me the chance to speak with and most importantly, learn from some really passionate and engaging people working with human rights issues in their daily lives” said Adelaide, one of Right Now Radio’s presenters.

This year Right Now Radio’s target is $800, if you would like to contribute or make a tax-deductible donation visit www.3cr.org.au, call 9419 8377 or pay in person at 21 Smith St, Collingwood.


Review – Renewal: Five Paths to a Fairer Australia

By Georgia Cerni

Sophie Cousins’ book Renewal: Five Paths to a Fairer Australia is, in many respects, a proposal. For Cousins, the COVID-19 pandemic has provided Australians with an opportunity to reconsider the ways our society currently functions. Cousins aptly makes her case – while in some ways the pandemic reinforced burgeoning inequalities, it also presented us the chance to apply collectivist values to solve systemic problems.
