Volunteering for a community radio station can be a fulfilling and rewarding experience.

Community radio is all about serving the needs and interests of the local community. By volunteering, you have an opportunity to contribute to the community by providing a platform for local voices and issues. Volunteering at a community radio station can provide an opportunity to learn new skills, such as audio production, broadcasting, programming, marketing, and more. These skills may be valuable in other areas of your life or career. Volunteering can introduce you to diverse people and communities, expanding your social network and providing opportunities for personal growth and development. Most importantly, it’s a creative and dynamic environment where you can have fun while contributing to a great cause.

Community radio can make a real difference in people’s lives by raising awareness, promoting dialogue, and highlighting local issues and events. Help us, and make a positive impact on your community.

On behalf of the Filipino Community in Colac – we would like to thank you and the OCR FM broadcasting network, for your generosity in broadcasting the fund raising event yesterday, to support the fire victims in Malapgap, Bukidnon, Philippines.

As of now we gathered $1,517.45 a great amount for the victims. And it’s all because of people like you in Colac and the areas around. We had people from Warrnambool, Mt. Gambier and Simpson. We really appreciate your kindness and good heart.

I cover the Colac Otway Shire on a daily basis by car for work and enjoy the exceptionally wide variety of music, the talk shows and very importantly the reading of the Colac Herald newspaper during my travel time. Thank you very much to all the presenters and programmers who keep such a wonderful station on the air, I listen for several hours a day right throughout the week.
