100.9FM is your local community radio station in the Great Southern.
We are a non-profit member-based station, run by volunteers who provide national news, local weather details, community information, and entertainment to our listening audience.
We promote and support Australian artists both established and emerging. We also support local, not-for-profit organisations and community groups by promoting their events and services on air.
We broadcast 24 hours a day, live from 6am to late, seven days a week with the majority of 100.9FM’s programs being locally produced and presented.
When tuning into Great Southern FM you’ll hear a mix of contemporary, jazz, blues, country, classical, gospel, First Nations, classic rock, and easy listening music, and in response to our listeners our music spans from the 1940s to today.
Our music reflects our diverse community.
Being authentic and inclusive to provide quality entertainment, information and a voice for our community.
Respect at all times for Volunteers, Members, Clients and Visitors
Openness, Accountability and Integrity

Commenced as Chair of the Board in 2019.
Steve (Hutch) Hutchings was appointed Treasurer on the Board of Albany Community Radio Inc (ACR) in February 2021.
Hutch has been a volunteer at ACR since 2008, as a Presenter. He currently presents a music show on Wednesdays (“Mystery Mix”) and on Saturday afternoons (“Saturday Sports Snippets”).
Hutch has trained a number of radio announcers and trained volunteers to produce show promos, sponsorship announcements etc
Hutch has an accounting background and after a quick stint in the Vice Chair position has found his niche in the Treasurer’s role.
I have been involved in the many facets of administration in both state and local government operations throughout my working life.
Since retiring, I felt the need to give back to our community, and so offered to assist GSFM wherever possible.
While enjoying the music and other programs broadcast, I believe my skills are more suited to the administration area, hence my focus has been assisting in the behind the scenes. The efforts involved in producing and announcing on-air, and the technical support required is amazing - I admire and respect those individuals with such talents.
If there is a need, I am willing to help – just like the rest of the Board and Reception team.
