At Swan Hill, on the River Murray, is 3SH Northern Victoria, serving the progressive towns of Swan Hill and Kerang and reaching out to the surrounding rich River Murray settlements, the Mallee and across the river into the western Riverina.

Being a unit of the Victorian Broadcasting Network (“The Age” broadcasting services) and of the Macquarie Network, 3SH always is assured of good feature programmes. Local interests are also well cared for, as many programmes by district artists are broadcast.

The three stations of the VBN promoted their advertising effectiveness to reach listeners across the state of Victoria

I’m embarrassed to be here. I’m waiting for the state radio sponsor to arrive. He’s late. Please just ask me to go away. I’m cheap.
