Upgrades to Alive 90.5 studios complete

ALIVE 90.5 has been serving the Parramatta, Cumberland and Hills Communities for the past four decades providing local content and diverse programs that aim to educate, entertain and inform our community about local issues, community groups and events.  

Run entirely by volunteers passionate about engaging and connecting our community, Alive90.5 also provides opportunities for locals to learn about and participate in the areas of announcing, audio production, music programming and content producing. 

Recently Alive90.5 completed major upgrades to their studios located at Balcombe Heights Estate and now offers the very best facilities for community radio. Upgrades to studios 1 and 2 include new carpets, soundbatts, LED signage, DJ decks, and dante AEQ capitol panels. A new kitchen and bathroom have also been installed as well as a new tower, a disability access ramp into the building with restored pathways and veranda.  

As part of the upgrades Alive90.5 built a new studio for audio and video podcasting as well as creating a meeting and training room facilities for conferencing and workshopping with AV. These facilities are available for community and corporate use.

Alive90.5 Chairman Andsley Dennis is proud of what a group of passionate community radio volunteers have achieved.

“The studios at Balcombe Heights have served us well since the 80’s, however the studios were tired and in need of a major upgrade. We are proud of our state-of-the art facilities we have created that will bring Parramatta, Cumberland and the Hills LGAs the very best in radio and podcasting” he said.

The upgrades to the Alive90.5 studios are thanks to funding received from City of Parramatta Council, the Hills Shire Council, Parramatta Leagues, IMB bank, Castle Hill RSL Group, Mario Bekes and the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
