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

“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.
