Monday 13 – Sunday 26 May 2019

#PBSRadioFestival #WorkYourMagic

Prepare to be amazed – the most magical time of the year is upon us again, as PBS 106.7FM gets ready for its biggest membership drive of the year. The charmers of PBS invite you to Work Your Magic, to help them keep Melbourne’s beloved music station dazzling and astonishing audiences for another year with the magic of radio. Behold, and be captivated by the spellbinding diversity of music that emerges from the station 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. Clear your calendar and dust off the old magic wand and top hat (make sure the rabbit’s well fed), and prepare to immerse yourself in PBS’ wondrous 2019 Radio Festival.

Commencing Monday 13 May through to Sunday 26 May, PBS is asking its marvellous supporters to clear out the spare change from behind their ears and gaze upon the array of benefits of an annual PBS membership. By renewing or becoming a first time member, your support will help the station to “Work Their Magic”, allowing its loyal volunteer presenters to continue to bring their transcending shows to airwaves.

“In Melbourne, we have a music scene that is the envy of the world right now, and I think PBS plays a big part by representing our music community so well. It is an absolute honour & privilege to be able to present two hours of the weird & wonderful music I come across every week with such an engaging & committed audience. The people who present the shows & the people who work behind the scenes at PBS are all music freaks, and I love everyone’s dedication to getting the music out into the world. Community radio really is the heartbeat of the wonderful music community we have here.”
Mike Gurrieri presenter Mystic Brew
