Welcome Home Dane!


On Saturday 30th September at the Pambula Surf Life Saving Club, you are invited to welcome home local hero Dane Waites, after his epic 4,000 km run from Perth to Pambula.  This fun-filled family event will be held between 12.00 pm and 3.30 pm, and local musos, The Figmentz and Gary Carson Jones will be there to entertain.  For more information about Dane’s homecoming click on the link below:- See more about Dane’s homecoming

You can also check out Dane’s Facebook page:  Facebook page Perth2Pambula

Returning to the Bega Valley from the south over the weekend, Edge FM presenter Andrew Ogilvie (pictured above with Dane) was chuffed to have been able to “catch up” with Dane as he approached Orbost.  Dane has been running from Perth to Pambula to raise awareness for Autism and Mental Health.  Andrew Ogilvie summed up what we were all thinking by saying, “He (Dane) and his support team are achieving what many would think is the impossible”.

Congratulations Dane Waites on your incredible effort in reaching your goal.  We at 93.7 Edge FM salute you! Tune into “The Way We Were” with Andrew Ogilvie every Tuesday from 11.00 am – 2.30 pm on on 93.7 Edge FM, your community radio station in the Bega Valley.

CRN’s HomeBrew program re-lanches as Aussie Music Weekly

CRN’s HomeBrew program re-lanches as Aussie Music Weekly

Focussing on new local and independent Australian music, CRN’s HomeBrew progam has been re-launched as Aussie Music Weekly.

Will & Tom’s Love/Hate Relationship

Will & Tom are new presenters on 93.7 Edge FM and air their show on Thursdays from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

They play 25-30 minutes of music they like, followed by 25-30 minutes of music they don’t like. This will not be used as an excuse to unnecessarily belittle people’s taste in music. Rather, they wish to use it as a mildly opinionated opportunity to be able to play a wide selection of music that they are passionate about.

Of course, all care will be taken to mitigate any possible sense of erraticism that may arise as a symptom of eclectic musical choices. The hour will end with a (preferably local) Australian song, as an opportunity for community engagement and representation.

Phone in and give them your thoughts!!!
