GAYWAVES 2SER 107.3FMBy: Michael Schembri (May 11 2002)
FM radio station 2SER in Sydney leads Australia’s Alternative Radio network. It broadcasts continuously from the Tower building of UTS on Broadway and its staffed all day every day by volunteers. The music is great and the programs challenging because people like Michael Schembri help compile them. Without them, the kings of talkback radio would rule the world. Michael became a force at Gaywaves around the same time as Steve Ostrow founded Mature Age Gays.
If you read the Sydney Star Observer you’ll know he recently locked horns with Chris Puplick, head of the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board. He’s that kind of guy – he comes out with pistols blazing. It was great to have him come and share his views about human rights and the homophobic challenges to gay rights round the world today.
Cherish your freedom, remember your struggles. And if there’s a disc jockey or newsreader still locked inside you, why not give them a call? They need you, they want you. Gaywaves, 2SER 107.3 FM, can be heard on Thursday evenings at 7.30 pm until 8.30 pm.
