Over the last 12 months there have been a few changes at Raglan Community Radio, not least of which was the appointment of a Station Manager last September, but now we’re also pleased to announce the arrival of our new logo.

We asked local designer Tim Greaney from Grean Design to help us out and then gave him the difficult brief of trying to represent all of our community and the station within a single image. We’re totally stoked with the end result after he took the headphones motif from our old logo and developed it into something that encompasses the whole of Whaingaroa.

As well as the new logo being visible in and around the studio at the Town Hall we also have new bumper stickers and because we’re so pleased with them we’re giving the first batch away for free!

On top of all this Raglan Community Radio is changing its phone number too. The station changed frequency to 98.1FM a few years ago and we thought that while we’re launching the new logo we should also put the frequency back into the number – so from today the phone number in the studio will be 825 2981.

Added to this you can now text our DJs while they’re on the air as well – messages and requests can be sent to 027 825 2981. And no, that’s not a typo; we got matching numbers to make everything just a little bit easier.

Thanks to Tim for the great design – and also to Meridian and WEL Energy Trust for their help on this project – and remember, we’re always keen to hear from people who’d like to be a DJ or have a great idea for a new show.

Please drop into the studio if you want a bumper sticker or need to update the old one and don’t forget our new number 825 2981 and if you want to text us just add the 027 prefix.
