Sippy Downs Radio – Tune to 87.6 FM or Listen Online!

We recently had the opportunity and pleasure to catch up with Des Cooper a local Sippy Downs resident who in August of 2013 set up the Village FM Radio Station at 80 years young. Now 85 Des is still going strong sharing his astounding music collection with the local and wider community.

“It took me some 2 years to get all the music together and another 2 to get the licence sorted out”

“With my love of music and knowing a lot of people in my area are vision impaired – who can’t watch television or read papers – I thought I’d get a station started,” Des said.

“A lot of music gets lost and wasted, and it’s nice to bring it all back to life.”

So far Des has converted more than 7000 songs from old records including 45’s, LP’s and 78’s and also, cassette tapes and videos into MP3s which he then plays on the air for listeners.
