“My UK friend was shocked to hear 98five, as ‘there is nothing like this in England’.”

After each of our generous supporters donates to our Radiothon Appeal, they are asked “why? what made you decide to support us today?”

This is what Felicity had to say.

Felicity has been listening to 98five for so long, she can’t remember the number of years! The first thing she does when she wakes up is turn on the radio (of which she has 5!) so that she can hear Sonshine throughout the whole house. Felicity stumbled across 98five one day while she was driving and was so thankful to find something that wasn’t “all rubbish” and “shocking jokes”.

Felicity reminisced about a holiday she took to the UK. She was driving with her friend and her friend asked what she would usually listen to in Australia. “A Christian radio station” Felicity replied. Her friend found 98five’s digital station and had it playing in the car within seconds. Her friend was in total shock and revealed “there is not one radio station like this in England”.

98five is the only radio station in Perth dedicated to spreading the positive message of hope in Jesus Christ. For over 34 years, we’ve been speaking life and hope into thousands of lives across Perth. There are people who are alive today, marriages still together, and people who still have their faith because of something they heard on this radio station.

Our goal is to bring hope into every home, so that every person in Perth and beyond (even those all the way in the UK) has the opportunity to hear the positive message of hope through their radios, cars and screens. But none of this is possible without people like you, will you partner with us?
