RTRFM are celebrating turning 40 with an all day outdoors broadcast in Hyde Park

And they've got a stellar lineup of friends to perform.

Perth's Community radio station RTRFM 92.1 are turning 40 this year, which is impressive any way you look at it, and they'll be celebrating with a series of events celebrating both past and future, all kicking off with a huge picnic in Hyde Park called Neon Picnic on April 1. The name comes from a series of RTRFM Festivals in the late-80s/early-90s, and the day will feature some of the station's best broadcasters live to air, chilling with mates, former presents and some of the new guard.

In addition, it'll feature a raft of local bands that feature on the radio now and then, including:

Errol H Trout

Alsy MacDonald, Jill Birt and Martyn P Casey performing several The Triffids

The Bank Holidays (coming out of retirement)

Turnstyle Lite

SImone & Girlfunkle

Verge Collection


Gabriel Fatin & Pete Jeavons

So head down to Hyde Park on Saturday 1 April between 9am and 5pm for lush day of family, friends, and a healthy dose of community radio.
