Wellington indie radio station Radio Active 88.6FM has been given a new lease of life but needs financial support to secure its future.

As a massive supporter of local music and creative communities for four decades, the station now calls upon its listeners and the wider Wellington community to donate in support of the station as it works back to financial stability.
The Radio Active Charitable Trust has been formed by key figures from Wellington’s creative arts and business communities, who will work together to develop a new vision for the station.
Radio Active will remain on air, but has launched a fundraising campaign aiming to raise $88,600.
One of New Zealand’s first FM stations, Radio Active launched the careers of prominent broadcasters including Maggie Barry, John Campbell and Samantha Hayes, and continues to draw its unique sound from the passion and dedication of scores of volunteer DJs and music aficionados.
An active champion of New Zealand music, the station has broken numerous local acts like Shihad, Fat Freddy’s Drop, The Black Seeds and The Phoenix Foundation.
The funds raised will be used to: Enable Radio Active to retain key station staff, hire and train a much-needed advertising representative, pay rent and upgrade key studio equipment.
