On Friday evening, 21 October we decided to take Rutherglen Indigo FM off the air initially just for 48 hours but now indefinitely. We are seeking a meeting with the licence owner to negotiate a new access agreement, to replace the previous one which expired on 30 June 2015. We are hopeful of commencing discussions regarding such an agreement within the next week or two. In the meantime, we apologise for the disruption this may cause for our local audience, members and the Rutherglen community in general.
We have called a meeting for 7pm on Wednesday 9 November at Rutherglen Senior Citizen’s Hall to update Rutherglen members with progress on this matter.
All enquiries on this matter can be referred to Scott Landells (President) on 0481 267 269 email [email protected]. Alternatively you can speak with Greg Clydesdale (Secretary) on 0448 110 212 or Andrea Leonard (Committee) on 0457 995 563. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

I apologise for not attending your meeting on the 10th January 2017, but unfortunately I had an appointment at the Eye Clinic in Albury at 9.30am that morning.
I was asking Ali last year to let me know if I could do some volunteer work for the Rutherglen Station when you get it going again,
Thanking you, Pat Robinson.
Thanks Pat for your message. Indigo FM ceased its partnership with the owners of the Rutherglen licence – Ali and Gerry Reed – in October 2016. Indigo FM owns 3 other narrowcast radio licences for Chiltern, Beechworth and Yackandandah and is focusing its efforts on building up each of those 3 sites. I am aware there is a replacement radio station for Rutherglen using the Reeds licence and suggest you contact them for further information. Thanks again for your support of Indigo FM. Scott Landells, President.
