Our high-power open narrowcasting service is operated by UNE Lifeand a team of UNE students servicing the University, our students, staff and the greater Armidale community.
With almost 50 years of history, the station is Australia’s oldest university broadcaster. Tune!Fm has a long history of music, politics, and activism – stemming from our radical start back in April 1970. 2UNE came into being as a result of growing dissatisfaction with a sleepy Liberal Government during the swinging 60s.
With the backing of Sir Zelman Cowan, the then Vice-Chancellor, the UNE Radio Committee pushed for a license to broadcast across the campus. Finally, they were successful and put together a studio in the Milton building. Then on that fateful day, April 27th, 1970, Dick Mutton muttered the words “Radio UNE, the time is 7 o’clock”.
Today TuneFM acts as a training facility giving volunteers valuable workplace skills in communication, project management, and teamwork.
A big thanks goes to SSAF who helps funding Tune!FM
Our volunteers graduate not only with their degree from UNE but also with a resume that sets them apart from the crowd.
