These will be considered for both our Friday Breakfast Friday Mix segment, as well as our Saturday night guest DJ program Trainwreck.

Submit to music@rtrfm.com.au with either ‘Breakfast Mix‘ or ‘Trainwreck Mix‘ in the subject line for consideration. Please note: while all submissions will be considered, not all will be played on-air or posted online.



Stay Connected While Isolating

RTRFM is taking steps to ensure the health and well-being of its volunteers, presenters and staff. RTRFM’s office is closed to the public from 5pm Friday 20 March but please call, email or message us. We’ll stay connected to you. 

RTRFM will continue to bring you outstanding programming from our extraordinarily creative volunteer presenters, making sure you hear the best and most diverse music we can find, as well as stories from your city and beyond. You can hear us anywhere, anytime in all the modern ways. We’ll keep you company. 

RTRFM sees the impact the virus prevention restrictions are having on the livelihoods of people in our treasured music and arts community. The vulnerability of music, arts and hospitality workers is a grave concern.
We’ll help wherever possible. 

RTRFM will continue to celebrate and support the creative culture of our city and bring you the work of musicians and artists during this crisis. Human adaptability and creativity will be key to our community’s resilience, and art will happen in unexpected ways. We’ll bring it to you. 

We might spend time apart, but we will come together as a community to get through this. Keep in touch with your friends, family, neighbours, and us. We’ll be with you. 

Stay tuned to RTRFMRadio is the best medium when all alone at home, it is a friend at the other end of the speakers and we hope over the next few months we can provide you with some company.

WIN This Week’s Feature Albums

RTRFM FEATURE ALBUM

Far Enough, Cable Ties

FThis week we look to Melbourne for your RTRFM Feature Record. Cable Ties second record, Far Enough.

The fearsome Melbourne trio follow up their 2016 debut record in fine style with their sophomore outing, the intense Far Enough.

Further expanding on their sound we’ve come to know and love, Far Enough draws on elements of proto-punk, garage rock and even 70s classic rock & roll sounds, resulting in big, reverberating guitar riffs backed by a pulsating rhythm section and singer Jenny McKechnie’s intense lyrics that grapple with the struggles of modern life.

On their second album, Cable Ties have indeed gone Far Enough.

RTRFM LOCAL FEATURE ALBUM

Slow Motion BreakupTanaya Harper

This week’s local feature album comes from the force that is Tanaya Harper.

Following a string of catchy singles, local indie favourite Tanaya Harper has given us her second EP of indie-rock meets power-pop sounds, Slow Motion Breakup.

Tackling deeply personal topics including mental health, relationships and self-growth, all delivered by irrisesitable harmonies, while catchy guitar hooks are complimented by a relaxed drums and bass, rounding out a catchy listen from start to finish, leaving us wishing all breakups could be this melodic and appealing.

To win, simply email RTRFM with your choice of feature album, your name, phone number and subscriber number.
