Join us behind the scenes at JOY FM, Melbourne's home for LGBTIQ+ broadcasters.
Broadcast Radio Australia is a brand new Channel 31 series showcasing the diversity that exists within Australia's community radio sector.
In our first episode, we take a look at Melbourne's popular LGBTIQ+ station Joy FM, sitting at 94.9 on the FM dial.
Joy 94.9 is an LGBTIQ+ volunteer-based community radio station committed to providing a voice for the diverse LGBTIQ+ communities, enabling freedom of expression, the breaking down of isolation and the celebration of our culture, achievements and pride.
The station is fuelled by the dedication of almost 300 volunteers and only a handful of paid core staff. Joy 94.9 is proudly self-funded through sponsorship and most importantly membership and donations.
