Run entirely by volunteers we are a not for profit organisation that broadcasts 24 hour a day to local listeners on 97.3FM, online and via smart speakers. Starting with Breakfast on weekday, through to Drivetime in the late afternoon and then a wide selection of music shows at all other times of the day, 7 days a week.
Unique Aspects that Apple FM can provide; real time traffic and weather information in our LIVE Breakfast and Drivetime shows, local news stories that are from the county town and our wide selection of shows to suit all ages and genres of music.
