3CR MURAL, FITZROY

3CR Community Radio at 21 Smith St, Fitzroy, is a dynamic, community hub that has produced radio since 1976. It is housed in an old rabbit warren of a terrace building near central Melbourne, which is decorated with an extensive mural by local artists Bindi Cole, Tom Civil and Reko Rennie. It is a pity that this mural (featuring stencilling, painting, illuminated signs, collage and freehand drawing), has been tagged and otherwise defaced.

3CR broadcasters present over 120 radio programs every week and listeners can tune in on 855AM, stream live through the web or download podcasts of our shows. The radio station was established in 1976 to provide a voice for those denied access to the mass media, particularly the working class, women, Indigenous people and the many community groups and community issues discriminated against in and by the mass media.
