BFM Radio

“A community is like a ship, everyone ought to be
prepared to take the helm.”

Henrik Ibsen

About BFM 87.6:

BFM is placing our popular Radio Training Program within the reach of the young members of the local community with our broadcasting FM Radio Station. With our overwhelming success, we started looking at ways to allow many others to receive the benefits that this program has to offer.

A fully operational FM radio station that is set up at the Beenleigh PCYC and broadcasts to the local Beenleigh community.

The station is a tool for the youth development programs that are run at the Beenleigh PCYC. All funding for the station has to be generated from BFM businesses.

The station broadcasts 24 hours a day and offers the Greatest Hits from the 80's, 90's and Today and the shows that are aired on the station are prepared and executed by the Radio Club members. Regular listeners take great pride in monitoring the development of our announcers who start going to air after their training, and then progressively improve with the number of shows that they do.

PCYC Radio Club:

The success of our Radio Club has been the backbone of the development of our ever expanding Radio Program.

We are in the process of enabling this program to be able to run in multiple PCYC's and Schools around Australia. We started the Internet Radio to allow this to happen.

We have been training students from different High Schools so they can commence a School Internet Radio program with schools from around the country contributing show content, and now it will be expanding to schools throughout Australia.

Every six months we run a "Radio Club" for 16 young people between the ages of 14 and 29, and during this period the participants not only learn how to become an announcer, they also learn how to run a working Radio Station.

The training is extensive and by the end of the program all participants have the opportunity to practice what they have learned and have their own "On Air" show that is broadcast locally over our FM Radio Station, and over the World through our Internet Radio Station.

Our Announcers:

The announcers who have aired shows on BFM are all graduates of our 6 month Radio Club training program that is run at both the Beenleigh and Logan PCYC's.

We have been amazed at the incredible talent that has emerged from this program and below are pictures of some of our great past and present announcers.

Some Successes:

With the passing of time we have lost contact with many of the past Radio Club members, but some have stayed in contact and there are some amazing stories to tell about the changes in their lives. Here are a few progress reports.

  • After a marathon 90 shows, Claire and Emilie have both started a Journalism course at Uni. Their talents have grown so much that they caught the ear of a major AM Radio Station and have commenced On-Air shifts with them. Claire has become a major part of a local theatre group as well.
  • With the influence of our program there have been nine others who have commenced tertiary courses in a media discipline.
  • Two of the above now run the same program at the Logan PCYC.
  • One of the above has become the Southern Hemisphere Manager for a major Cinema group.
  • A further six have started their own businesses with their newly acquired confidences and people skills.
  • Three were in struggling music groups and have since started to get into "The Fast Lane" with their music careers.
  • One came to us as a Cabinetmaker and today is in the process of setting up a multi-million dollar CD Label - Look out Sony.
  • Every other announcer has had there lives changed in one way or another, and are now enjoying a more comfortable career path.
