Able Radio – Monday’s 10-11am on MaineFM 94.9

A message from Alison Troup at Able Radio:

I’d like to update you on how Able Radio is going. We have been on air since October 2019 and have successfully broadcast 34 of our weekly radio programs, plus we did a special 2 hour outside broadcast for International Day of People with Disability. That’s 36 hours of radio broadcast! We go to air every Monday 10 to 11am, and the show is repeated on Thursday morning at 9am. You can listen on 94.9fm or stream live on the internet at www.mainfm.net

We have a regular team, including myself, Glenn Wiliams, Sue Vaugn, Joe Smith, Josh Cody and Ned Middleton. Elizabeth Scanlon has regularly recorded and produced material, the Mount Alexander Disability Advocacy Group gives us monthly updates, Lloyd Dodsworth has done fortnightly streamed movie reviews during the lockdown (and monthly film reviews otherwise), and Karen Nelson has regularly contributed. We’ve run a series of segments on the Mount Alexander Shire Accommodation and Respite Group, we regularly work with Windarring Disability services, and have broadcast a heap of informative and interesting segments about people’s lives who are living with a disability.

Vincent Casey (https://vincentcasey.com) and Ryan Allen developed our logo (attached to this email), The Theatre Royal has supported our regular film reviews and The Bridge Hotel has supported our regular live music reviews.

Able Radio has a Facebook profile, Mixcloud account (to listen to shows any time from anywhere), and a Podcast! Links below.


Able Radio receives Community Broadcasting Foundation funding to produce and manage the radio program, and have recently been successful in a Mount alexander Shire Council community grant to purchase portable recording equipment. We have applied for further funding from the CBF to continue to purchase production and management support, which is provided by myself.

The Covid19 lockdown has proven challenging for us and we have produced all of our content from home. This has meant that we have not been able to collaborate with all of our regular presenters, but with the easing of restrictions we hope to be back in the radio station producing live radio once again.

We continue to search for more people to be involved in the radio program, if you know of anyone who may be interested, please give them this email address and/or our phone number 0457 411 095. If someone needs extra support to participate in the radio program, we ask that disability support is provided (unfortunately our grant funding can only stretch so far and this is something we cannot provide).

We’d also appreciate you sharing Able Radio with your friends, colleagues and family. We’re aiming to have Able Radio listened to widely in our community and further abroad, so please tell your friends about us, like and follow us on Facebook and ask your friends to do so also.

Able Radio are also looking for a sponsor for our radio program. In return, the sponsor is promoted during our show and in our promotional material. Please contact me if you or someone you know is interested in sponsoring the show.

If you would like to discuss anything {here}, or need assistance understanding anything, please do not hesitate to call me on 0457411095.

Thank you again so much for supporting Able Radio. We all feel like we’re involved in something pretty special and we hope you do too.

Kind regards from Ali and all at Able Radio
