Tune!FM is our very own, student-driven radio station, located at our Armidale campus, here at the University of New England.

Our high-power, open narrowcasting service is operated by the legendary team from UNE Life alongside dedicated UNE students, who are working whilst studying, imporving their real life, transferable work skills. 

The station services the University, our students globally, UNE 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 allowing students to learn and enhance invaluable workplace skills in communication, project management, and teamwork.
