The station has grown significantly since first going to air in March 1984 and is now operated by over 200 volunteers and a small number of staff.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why does Radio 4CRB-FM need my donation?
4CRB-FM receives no direct government financial support for the operation of the station. A major part of the income required to operate the station comes from the music lovers who appreciate the service we provide all day, every day. Without the support of Radiothon, donations and bequests, the station would eventually cease to exist.
You have a Radiothon, businesses advertise on the station, why do you need my donation?
Sponsorship (advertising), the Radiothon, donations and bequests make up the income streams that ensure 4CRB can continue into the future. A good 20% of our funding comes to us via donation, in discussion with some, the reason is they wish not to be recognised officially, or they just don’t want to provide their contact details for whatever reason. Whatever your reason, your donation is welcome and used wisely to ensure the stations continuity.
What is the difference between becoming a Supporter at Radiothon and a donation?
A supporter officially supports the station, they are recognised with a supporters card, a CD containing a selection from our playlist and has input into the stations decisions on programming and content. Donations can be anonymous and therefore an option for those who don’t want to be recognised.
