We sincerely hope that all PBS listeners found some time and space over the Christmas and New Year period to have a break, to spend time with friends and family, or to get away after all the lockdowns and travel restrictions. 


For those that had to work through, hopefully a break is not far away. 


Here at PBS it’s been as busy as ever. Our office closed for a couple of weeks but our hard-working tech team continued to put in long hours to build and fit-out our incredible new radio station at Collingwood Yards. There’s still a mountain of work to be done but every day another item gets ticked off the ‘to do’ list.


On-air the holiday period has created opportunities for a heap of incredible announcers to do fill-in shifts, or for regular announcers to pop up in alternative slots - sometimes revealing their passions for musical genres with which they’re not normally associated. We hope you’ve enjoyed summer listening on PBS and a big thanks to the many hundreds of PBS listeners who sent such lovely texts to the studios during our summer programs. Most of your regular favourites are back on-air now but there’s still plenty of fill-in volunteers giving up their time to make great summer radio on PBS.


As exciting as our new studios are, it’s hard not to feel just a little sad watching our former Easey St home being stripped bare. 


We all have great memories of that building – the shows, the events, the performances and of course the people. 




Now in 2022 we have the chance to create new memories and thanks to the generosity of our members and donors we can do that in a radio station that is truly magnificent.
