The new committee for 2020/21 is as follows:
Ray Walters Chairman, Graham Johnston Secretary, Christine Kent Treasurer, Rose Marschall, Tony Adriaanse and John Rohde. We thank our past committee members for their involvement over the years. This year has had its challenges but we look forward to brighter times at Trax FM
The Annual General Meeting of Trax FM will be held on Wednesday 4th November commencing at 7pm at the Phoenix Park Trotting Hall. Due to COVID19 restrictions there is a limitation on the number of people attending. Everyone is welcome but only financial members can vote or stand for positions on the Board. Attendees will need to provide contact tracing details and observe COVID19 spacing in the hall. Nominations for the Board are now open. The application form is on the station noticeboard. Applications close Wednesday 28th October at 5pm.
We have a new studio number for listeners to use to talk to our presenters. Please call 8630 0719. If you call our main number you will get through to our office. Currently that does not have a messagebank but will have one when it is switched over to our new provider.
Radio Filipino returns to Trax FM on Sunday 7th June at 2pm. As the restrictions ease in the COVID-19 crisis, Radio Filipino returns to the airwaves in their bi-weekly broadcasts on Thursdays (1pm to 3pm) and Sundays (2pm to 4pm).
During the current period of restrictions we have introduced some changes to our programming on Trax FM. Evening timeslots on Mondays and Fridays have music programming without presenters and this is likely to continue for quite some time. With winter approaching we will concentrate on having presenters on air during daylight hours. The exceptions are Thursdays and Saturdays where the current programmes will continue.
Radio Reading continues while the paper publication of the “Recorder” is in recess. Classified notices are still available through various sources online, media releases, newsletters, and other online resources are still available (including occasional articles in the online Recorder page) for us to use. The Adelaide Sunday Mail will also be read as many articles are of interest to local readers. Following Radio Reading we are broadcasting the “Vision Australia Hour” from the Community Radio Network.
There will be no Radio Reading broadcast on Sunday 19th April as the Recorder newspaper is not publishing this week (Thursday 16th April). Next publication date is Thursday 23rd April and hence our next Radio Reading broadcast will be Sunday 26th April (the day after Anzac Day) Trax FM staff
There will be some changes to the programming on Trax FM due to the current situation with the virus. Jan , Jimmy and Radio Filipino are taking a break from radio until the committee deems the situation has improved enough. In some cases there will be resheduling of other programmes into the gaps created by these absences. More to follow
Radio Filipino last night celebrated 25 years of broadcasting on Trax FM. Congratulations to all presenters past and present who have helped achieve this milestone.
