RMR
PROGRAMMING

Our intention at RMR is to entertain and inform.

Right now, in phase 1 of our launch you’ll hear only music. Our playlists have been carefully curated to appeal to most but we can’t please everybody all the time.

We play classic and well loved songs and throw in some new and less well known quality tracks to keep it interesting.

Programming will evolve with the community’s feedback and support.

We want to hear local voices.

Most importantly we’ll support local musicians, local industry and community organisations.

Rise

Playlist is upbeat, quality hits predominantly from the 80s-00s to kick off the day, put a spring in your step and a smile on your dial. In time this will be presented live and include weather updates and the surf report.

6am – 10am every day.

Easy Beats

Our take on easy listening featuring an eclectic mix of beloved, mid-tempo songs from all eras that are not too challenging on the ear and lift the soul.

We have reserved 10am to 4pm primarily for music, to encourage local businesses to play in store or at their establishments.

10am – 4pm every day.

Take it home

Two hours devoted to celebrating Australian music. This is also where we get to showcase and promote our local talent.

In time you’ll be able to go to our Local Produce page to purchase local music and find out more about our local muso’s.

 

Remedy RMR

Wind down at the end of the day with some beautiful tracks to soothe a tired mind. This playlist features pop/rock/folk classics – think old school Fleetwood Mac, Van Morrison, The Beatles, Otis Redding, Neil Young and contemporary chill with Angus and Julia Stone, Ray la Montagne and Bon Iver.

Essentially, we’re turning the tempo down a notch so you can too.

6pm – midnight Sunday – Thursday.

You should be dancing

Get your groove on. It’s the weekend and time to dance to some old school classic and fresh floor fillers.

6pm – midnight Friday – Saturday.

Ambient Chill

Create the perfect late night/early morning atmosphere with this chilled playlist of electronica and ambient soundscapes.

Midnight – 2am every day.

Classically Calm

A gentle classical music playlist to calm and still the mind.

2am – 4am every day.

Global Beat

Heralding the start of a new day with a diverse selection of jazz and world music’s finest artists. A veritable cornucopia of global cultural beats.

4am – 6am every day.

Local Produce

Well known and loved local musician, MC and teacher Mike Goodwin and his partner Angela D’Arcy-Evans present music from our homegrown heroes.

Coming Soon

As RMR evolves we intend to deliver further programming including:

The Local Pulse

The Local Pulse is a live, one-hour news and current affairs program – delivered by local journalist Nicky Lefebvre.

A reliable, objective, local news source is critical to keeping communities informed, up-to-date and therefore safe and positively connected.

We will invite and seek answers to community questions but won’t trade in rumour – if a story can’t be substantiated you won’t hear it on The Local Pulse.

Music will feature across the hour, punctuating a round-up of live and pre-recorded interviews with regular and occasional guests.

These will include Shire officers and councillors, Police, local health advisors, mental health experts, educators, indigenous leaders and fitness experts.

10am – 11am Thursdays
