Hobart FM - 7THE Info

A Short History Hobart FM was the first FM station in Tasmania and one of the first in Australia. Station Background Hobart FM Incorporated applied for and was granted a Public Radio License in 1977 under the auspices of the Tasmanian College of Advanced Education at Mt Nelson. Using the ...

Following the college's relocation to Launceston in 1980, Hobart FM Incorporated assumed full responsibility for the running of the station, subsequently moving to premises in the Hobart CBD, where it continued to operate a lively and alternative radio service under the call sign 7THE FM (92FM). In March of 1992 the station re-located to its current premises at 17 Alma Street, Bellerive (in the City of Clarence) where the station continues to fulfil its role as a responsive and innovative community broadcaster with specialist music programs, community access and multicultural presentations, as well as information programs covering a wide and varied range of subjects. With the move to the new transmitter site and planning for a new building the station is now using the call sign Hobart FM. This call sign represents a mature station which serves the people of Hobart. Program Philosophy Hobart FM's broadcasts are at once eclectic and broad ranging. Briefly, the station aims to cater for the information needs and entertainment needs of those not catered for by main stream radio in Hobart. From classical to blues, from country to easy listening and nostalgia, there is a large array of music styles represented across the program schedule, with special attention given to local performances and ethnic language broadcasts. Hobart FM enables the voices of individuals and minority groups to be heard throughout the greater Hobart area. Broadcast Area Hobart FM transmits its signal at 96.1 MHz from a transmitter site on Mount Faulkner which allows coverage to the greater Hobart area. A translator service on the eastern shore at Droughty Point broadcasting at 92.1 MHz enhances reception in some of the "black spots" in the southern region of the city created by Hobart's geographic layout. The move to the new transmitter site has improved reception in the station's licence area. A recent audience survey carried out by the Federal Government in association with the Community Broadcasting sector and well respected audience research organisation Mc Nair Ingenuity revealed that 23% of the Hobart radio audience accessed Community Radio during a listening week. Full details of the survey can be found on www.cbonline.org.au under listener survey. Management Structure Hobart FM is a Public Radio Station operated by Hobart FM Incorporated which is "a not for profit", community-based organisation. The station is administered by a Committee of Management comprisied of eleven people elected by the Association's members at an annual general meeting. Although the Committee is entrusted with the overall management of the station, Hobart FM could not operate without the services of some 100 or so active volunteers who undertake a large range of tasks from broadcasting and production to clerical and fundraising activities. The reliance on volunteer involvement not only enables Hobart FM to operate on a tight budget, but facilitates direct community participation in the day to day running of the organisation. Financial Sources Hobart FM receives income from five main sources: Twice yearly Government Grants through the Community Broadcasting Foundation for the production and broadcast of ethnic programs, The running of Clarence Country (a country music evening where guests are invited to express their talents) – Clarence Country is conducted every Tuesday evening at the Rosny Park Bowls Club, 40 Bastick Street, Rosny and is a valuable source of income, Membership Subscriptions ($33 per year or $22 concession) and donations (Donations over $2 are Tax Deductible), Sponsorship of programs, Fundraising activities such as raffles and dinner dances.

Drew III/Universal Boss!! History of name[edit] The name "Put-in-Bay" originally only referred to the bay, itself. In the latter-1700s, the schooners sailing on Lake Erie, would "put in" to this bay, to wait out bad weather on the Lake. (Many of the uneducated sailors used the slang phonetic term, puddin' (or pudding) bay,[5] resulting in later local-historians' attempt to attribute various explanations for the term "pudding bay", which, in reality, had no meaning, but was simply a slang phonetic variant of "Put-in-Bay".) In 1820 and 1830, the island was under the jurisdiction of Huron County, Ohio
