Radio Reading Service - Turning Print into Sound

Turning print into sound

Radio 1RPH informs and entertains listeners across the Canberra, Wagga Wagga and Junee regions by turning print into sound.

Each day our volunteers read from the major daily newspapers, including the Canberra Times, and from popular international and Australian magazines, journals, serialised books and community newsletters. We also feature readings from The Daily Advertiser and The Southern Cross for our Wagga Wagga and Junee listeners.

If you have difficulty reading printed material or just want to stay informed in these fast paced times while enjoying a range of entertaining programs, then Radio 1RPH is for you. Tune in and find out what’s happening in your community, across the nation, and around the world.

Radio 1RPH broadcasts from 7.00am until late into the evening, with the BBC World Service broadcasting overnight.

2019 Annual Appeal

The inaugural Radio 1RPH Annual Appeal has now wound up after a busy week – and what a result!

The station’s board, staff and volunteers have been overwhelmed by the support shown by our listeners and the greater community.

The appeal exceeded all expectations, and has raised over $32,000 towards keeping our service right where it belongs – on the Canberra, Wagga Wagga and Junee airwaves and bringing a world of information to those less able to access it in a visual way.

But its more than that for us. The support and encouragement shown by our community has been uplifting for all of us who help bring this service to life – but often wonder how it is being received… (pardon the pun)!

Now we know, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.  Thank you everyone.

From the Board, Staff and Volunteers of Radio 1RPH

PS – while the appeal may be over, your support is always welcome throughout the year. Donations can be made at any time (just click the button below) and we are always seeking new sponsors, volunteers and contributors. Our station manager Jenni would love to hear from you!
