As we begin a new year and a new decade, we have been busy working on some changes that will bring a fresh look to our station. Over the next few weeks we will be revealing the results of this work to our listeners. Happy New Year.
From everyone at Trax FM. We hope you enjoy your break and have a safe start to the new year as we start a new decade on air. There are some exciting changes in the wind at Trax FM in the new year. Don’t forget on Christmas Day we will have a rebroadcast of the Carols in the Park at 1pm. Throughout the rest of the day we have music for you to enjoy. Merry Christmas

Our last outside broadcast will be next Sunday (15th Dec) when we bring you Carols in the Park from Memorial Park in Port Pirie. The main carols programme starts at 8pm but we may add in some of the schools performances that are on before this. Our Radio Reading programme will be broadcast at 6pm instead of the usual 7pm for this week only. It will be a great night.

Last night we had another fundraiser for Trax FM in conjunction with the Pirie Community and Sporting Club. A big thank you to the Club and the Billy Goat Hill Band for providing the facilities and the music on the night. We had a wonderful time and caught up with many family and friends during the evening. The dance floor was busy all night and the friday night meals provided by Trevor were great. Thank you to Judy for all your work putting it together. Rhonda and Rose from Trax FM organised the raffles and Vicki answered all the questions that people may have had. Thank you also to the Savoy Soccer Club who donated prizes for our door raffle when they heard we were having a fundraiser.
Soccer and football are over for this year and now we turn to our end of year activities. The Daniel Pearl concert and Carols in the Park are planned to lead us up to Christmas this year. stay tuned for more information

Well the Port Pirie Masters Games are over and what a thrilling 10 days it has been bringing you interviews and results and catching up with the really wonderful people in our area who organise sport for the various organisations. The crew at Trax FM appreciate the time you spent with us talking sport. Well done to all of the organisers out there who were involved from the various clubs. Without you the competition would not have gone ahead, and we would not have access the enthusiasm and thoughtfulness that you have expressed to us and our listeners through your interviews. We have made friends and have already a few things in the pipeline for the future.
