New FM radio station launched

NARACOORTE locals can listen to a positive radio alternative after the official launch of Lime FM on Saturday.

The community was invited to a celebration in the town squares to enjoy an afternoon of live entertainment, a free barbecue and giveaways.

Performances were by Scott Finck, duo Jennie Brown and Sarah Shepherd, and Ruby Charlotte Band.

There were also live on-air interviews.

The station broadcasts on 104.9FM out of Mount Gambier and now retransmits on 99.3FM so people in the Upper SE can get clear reception.

The project was the vision of the late Craig Francis, who owned and operated local business Caveland Electronics for 13 years.

He had been liaising with Lime FM for several years before his death and family and friends took it upon themselves to see it through in his memory.
