Your favourite Adelaide youth community station that plays electronic music ain’t a teenager anymore!

On March 17, 1998, Fresh 92.7 started broadcasting for the first time. Sure, we were sharing the airwaves with an Italian ESL radio station at the time, but it was something – and that something has grown over the last 20 years into a full-time radio station and a vibrant community we’re pretty proud of! We put together a SICK montage to mark the occasion, looking back over the last 20 years with some words from our General Manager, Troy Sincock:

One of the gentlemen in the start of that video is Chris Velliaris, one of Fresh 92.7’s founding members. Can you believe we started as an idea between Chris and his two mates, James and Geoff just over 20 years ago? Loz & Thomo had a quick chat to Chris about the last 20 years of Fresh 92.7:

Another person integral to making Fresh 92.7 what it is today is Troy Sincock, who’s been our General Manager for a huge chunk of our life so far! Friday, March 17 actually marks his last day with us, so Loz & Thomo pulled him into the studio for a surprise chat:

A lot of hard work has gone into Fresh over the last 20 years from the countless volunteers who’ve passed through the studios, and we feel like we’ve earned a decent celebration. Our birthday may be on March 17, but that’s only the beginning…

We’ve got a whole YEAR of 20th birthday celebrations planned.

Mad parties, huge giveaways, super fun on-air and online stuff… we’ve got a LOT of stuff in the pipeline which we’re excited to announce!

 

Keep it locked on Fresh across the entire weekend to help us celebrate our 20th Birthday, and stay tuned for news about the rest of our celebrations!
