Community Radio Station – 6GME Radio Goolarri 99.7 FM first commenced broadcasting on ABC Regional Radio in August, 1991 with a one hour a week magazine program.
As the station developed and the skills of trainees flourished the station gradually increased its airtime to meet staff and community demand.
The station was eventually broadcasting 25 hours per week on ABC until it started to operate its own community radio license in July 1998 by broadcasting 24 hours a day. Radio Goolarri provides an avenue whereby social, cultural and political ideas and concerns can be expressed.
It is also an area where traditional language, music and culture can be fostered along with the more contemporary forms of artistic expression. It’s a place where Indigenous people can tell their own stories in their own way. It’s also a place for non-Indigenous and Indigenous people to come together.
