After 18 years... still growing strong.
Warwick's only local radio station, community radio 4SDB Rainbow-FM 89.3, first went to air on 16th October 1995. We are a not-for-profit organisation owned and operated by the Warwick Community FM Radio Assoc. Inc.
We provide a local voice for issues and concerns regarding the Southern Downs
region and beyond. Our broadcast studios are located
at 20 Willi St in Warwick
, Queensland, Australia.
Rainbow-FM transmits on an effective radiated broadcast power of 2,000 watts on 89.3
MHz, plus we stream all our programs live on the internet
- we have many loyal listeners not just locally, but all around Australia and from all over the world.
Community Radio is all about variety, diversity and independence (re. CBAA Codes of Practice
We present many and varied live-to-air programs
(presented by a dedicated team of volunteers
from throughout the local community), who play all various and different genres and styles of music
. We broadcast 24/7 (168 hours/week), and have 123+ hours of live and locally presented programs weekly, 82% of which is music. Rainbow-FM has our own locally produced breakfast programs 6.00-9.00am seven days-a-week. We also broadcast a National News service
seven days-a-week, 6.00am-7.00pm Monday to Friday, and 6.00am-12 midday on weekends, plus regular local News, Rural Reports, and community announcements
Rainbow-FM also has its own mobile radio studio
, so we can transmit an "outside broadcast" remotely from various locations, away from the studios in Warwick.
