Indigo FM is very excited to announce that we have reached an agreement with Indigo North Health to set up our Chiltern radio studio within the new Chiltern Neighbourhood House. This marks the beginning of an exciting phase for our volunteer-run local radio station and especially for the community of Chiltern. We are planning to be on air around the end of October 2019.

Indigo FM Chiltern will put out a local signal with an approximate radius of 5km on 87.6FM. The station will be on air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year and will be run entirely by volunteers. It will provide an opportunity for locals of all ages to be trained to present radio programs to their local community as well as creating podcasts. Currently there are a couple of locals already trained up and others keen to be trained.

87.6 Indigo FM Chiltern will join our sites at Beechworth, Tangambalanga and Yackandandah as a full-time radio site, open for business.

Our site at the Chiltern Neighbourhood House offers many benefits and should be a good fit within this great facility for Chiltern. Indigo FM is grateful to the staff of Indigo North Health for their support, especially Maree Murphy as well as Chiltern Tourism and Development Inc and Indigo Shire whose community grant funds have allowed the purchase of some equipment for the site.

If you’ve ever harboured a secret ambition to have your own radio show, well we want to talk to you about making that happen. We would love for you to become a regular presenter on 87.6 Indigo FM Chiltern. Your show might be about music that you love – or films, IT, cars, gardening, sport etc. Talk to us about your passion and we will train you up to make it a reality.

Membership of Indigo FM ranges from $14 if you’re a student or pensioner/concession to $80 per annum for a business. That will get you two 30 second recorded announcements per day on our airwaves indicating your support of Indigo FM. Full Membership details are available here.

We’re also keen to take on volunteers who wish to support Indigo FM in a range of behind the scenes roles.

For all enquiries please email us on [email protected] or call Scott on 0481 267 269.

87.6 Indigo FM Chiltern will play a unique mix of music interspersed with announcements for local businesses and events. Musically we are very proud of the fact that our sites embrace diversity and play a minimum 50% Australian content, including a focus on current, independent Australian artists, many of whom are either based locally or have toured through the Indigo Shire playing at local festivals, pubs, wineries, cafes, halls etc. We mix this in with some familiar tunes and then change our playlist every 6 months to keep things sounding fresh.

All enquiries on this matter feel free to contact Acting Site Co-ordinator Scott Landells on 0481 267 269 or via email on [email protected].
