3MBS Fine Music Melbourne is Melbourne’s only fine music radio station, delivering a rich and dynamic range of specialised programs twenty-four hours a day. Based at the Abbotsford Convent, 3MBS is a not-for-profit community broadcaster that does not depend on government funding for its operations. Revenue is generated through private giving, bequests, subscriptions, sponsorship, and trusts and foundations. While the organisation has a small team of paid employees, there are approximately two hundred enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers who work to ensure the smooth running of the station for the benefit of the community. Every month, the station’s volunteers contribute over 1400 hours in roles as diverse as presenting, programming, library duties, sound engineering, IT, publicity, events, promotions and fundraising. In 2019 3MBS Fine Music Melbourne continued to passionately support Melbourne's fine music community through the promotion of local, classically trained musicians and composers. Highlights for the year included the broadcast and recording of over 234 interviews, 94 concerts, 87 live-to-air and pre-recorded performances and the live broadcast and online streaming of six Dvořák Marathon concerts from Melbourne's premier fine music venue, The Melbourne Recital Centre. The station’s youth programs including The Talent, the 3MBS Victoria Young Performer Award, and The National Fine Music Network Young Virtuoso Award continued to provide opportunities for twenty four young musicians to perform, experience live-to-air interviews and receive national and international coverage through audio streaming from the 3MBS website. Funds raised for capital expenditure were used to complete the urgent technical upgrades of the station’s broadcasting studios, mastercontrol room and to introduce a digital playout system to replace the use of CDs. These initiatives will ensure the station’s sustainability well into the next decade. The 3MBS FM program can now be sourced from platforms such as the iHeart Radio App, Apple Music and through Smart Speakers which will cater for the engagement of younger supporters and listeners. Other technical advances include an upgraded and operating website, the 3MBS YouTube channel and live streaming of our Marathon and other recitals on Facebook.
