Now we're almost 6 months into a new financial year, we have to do something about the dreaded 20/80 ratio... basically we have 80% of the funds needed until September 30 but we must bridge the missing 20% gap otherwise we'll record another loss for the year!

Popularity and Use are UP!

Compared to this exact time a year ago visitor sessions are up 3.4%, users are up 2.1%, pageviews are up 1.7% and new users are slightly down at 81% while 19% are returning to enjoy us again.

Donations this time last year covered all our costs but this year we're running almost 20% less. Please help us find the $A2,322 we still need by September 30 and so we can continue bringing you more stories and free services.

93 Regular Donations of $25

Just 93 people of the thousands who visit here each month donating $25 each will bridge the gap. Will you please be one of those 93? We'll add you to the Supporter Roll of Honor and thousands of people will thank you for keeping the project on track!

The 2080 Campaign is now underway and your donation via our Paypal donate button will be acknowledged with thanks. All funds are used to meet our regular monthly overhead costs such as storage, utiliities and office service expenses. These are fixed for 5 years.

Our volunteers maintain the website, research and prepare the features and radio guides and continue their work on the new website and the Collective Access database projects for release later this year/early 2016. After more than 10 years we're still small and personal enough that each individual supporter is known by name!

You can make sure we continue keeping the radio memories safe..... thank you in advance for your donation to bridge the 2080 gap!
