Being a unit of the Victorian Broadcasting Network ("The Age" broadcasting services) and of the Macquarie Network, 3SH always is assured of good feature programmes. Local interests are also well cared for, as many programmes by district artists are broadcast.

I'm embarrassed to be here. I'm waiting for the state radio sponsor to arrive. He's late. Please just ask me to go away. I'm cheap.
