PBS Membership Benefits

PBS is a station about music. We keep you in touch with what is happening in your scene, locally and abroad, with interviews and live performances every week. PBS keeps everyone in the loop and contributes to keeping Melbourne the creative city it is with music at its core.

Sounds great? Here’s the catch – we need your support to make this all possible!

Everyone who becomes a PBS Member* receives these great benefits:

PBS Easey magazine home delivered twice a year

Special Member entry price to PBS events

Exclusive member giveaways of tickets, CDs and more throughout the year

Great music from a great radio station that supports and promotes music and music making

 

Plus, everyone who signs up gets a PBS membership pack, which includes:

A PBS Member Discount Card, which provides discounts to more than 100 businesses and services around town

An exclusive bumper sticker

Sounds of Studio 5 Live compilation download

Or go packless! If you'd prefer to receive nothing in the mail, we're happy to oblige! You'll keep the warm fuzzies of supporting PBS, and feel a little lighter knowing you've said 'no thanks' to potential land fill.

Every person who signs up or renews gets an exclusive PBS compilation digital download – tracks you can’t buy at records stores, and can’t find on Soundcloud.

THE COMPILATION is a reflection of the vast array of sounds and genres that are broadcast out of Easey Street 24/7.  Whether you have a love for afrobeat, hip hop, psych, garage punk, electronica, soul or jazz- there'll be something for you on this CD!

PBS needs your help to Make It Home.

The PBS move to Collingwood Yards is taking shape.

We’ve taken possession of the empty shell, have appointed a builder and we are working on turning it into our new studios, but we really need your help. 

Building a new radio station from scratch is expensive and will cost us in excess of $2 million and every dollar donated to PBS helps us fit out new studios, supports this massive move and benefits music lovers everywhere.

We've managed to raise around 60% of the funds so far through support from listeners and members, as well as from the Victorian Government (through the Community Support Fund), the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, Creative Partnerships Australia via Plus 1, and The Community Broadcasting Foundation.

You can get behind PBS by making a tax-deductible donation to our Make It Home appeal by clicking hereEvery donation will help, and below are some suggested levels of support.

  • $25,000 and above - Sky's the Limit*
  • $25,000 - Raising the Roof*
  • $10,000 - Higher Ground*
  • $5,000 - Build Me Up*
  • $1,067 - Good Vibrations*
  • $500 - Brick by Brick
  • $250 - Foundation
  • $2 to $249 - Basement Jams

* You'll be acknowledged on a plaque in our new home!

All donations over $2 to the station are tax deductible – so if you're already a member, that's extra incentive to donate and help minimise your bill at tax time.
