THANK YOU HCCU - Your Grant Will Fund the Soundproofing of the Bucketts Radio "On-Air Studio"Friday 22 Jun, 2012
Holiday Coast Credit Union has announced the successful applicants for community grants funding and Bucketts Radio was fortunate enough to be awarded a grant for the soundproofing of the On-Air studio at the radio station.
Currently we have no soundproofing in the studio, so this will make a huge difference to the quality of the sound, and also the on-air experience for the presenters and guests.
Work will be starting soon with the help of various local businesses and organisations, so if you think you may be able to assist please stop in for a look or call the station on 6558 2400.
Stay tuned for updates !!
Bucketts Radio on-air for another 12 monthsTuesday 19 Jun, 2012
On 1 June 2012 Bucketts Radio continued to broadcast on a new Temporary Community Broadcasting Licence (TBCL) for another 12 months. On a TBCL, radio stations must re-apply to ACMA for a licence each year. This is Bucketts Radio's fourth consecutive TBCL.
This year's wish list for the station is to soundproof the on-air studio and improve the production studio and office space. Most importantly, Bucketts Radio is hoping for funding to help reach more of their target audience by installing a tower on a hill so more of Gloucester and it's surrounding residence can pick up Bucketts Radio on 104.1FM.

Gloucester represents itself at the Rally outside Parliment HouseWednesday 2 May, 2012
On Monday April 1st 2012 , a contingent of concerned residents traveled to Sydney to join with thousands of NSW residents faced with an uncertain future.
This is due to mining and gas extraction going ahead with only scant regulation and possible undesirable effects on environment and peoples health.
MP Richard Stoner was given a mixed reception when addressing the gathering.
Many of the attendees were in the over 40's age group and reaching well into their 80's and participating in an action like this for the first time.
The Gloucester residents then moved on to make a stand at AGL's Head Office in North Sydney, to deliver a letter to the CEO about water studies that had been agreed to at the blockade in Gloucester recently, but it woul appear are now being refused !
