Your Sound. Your Community.
Alive 90.5 is YOUR community radio station serving the Sydney areas of Parramatta, Cumberland and the Hills. Our programs include Breakfast and Drive with regular news, and traffic updates, Morning Magazine with news and special guests such as local politicians and personalities, plus a range of special interest programs. Just check out the on air guide on our website to see what’s happening. We broadcast 24/7 from our studios in the Balcombe Heights Estate, Baulkham Hills.
The mission of Alive is to serve its community by broadcasting a diverse range of programs, suited for all groups in the community. Alive 90.5 is a volunteer run organisation and is funded through listener support, grants and limited commercial sponsorship.
From April 2009, Alive 90.5 commenced streaming of its programs live, over the internet. This allows people outside the community area served to enjoy the variety of programming which Alive 90.5 offers.
The station’s current programs cover a wide range of music styles including adult contemporary, jazz, country and easy listening. Alive 90.5 also broadcasts programs that are presented by special interest groups, such as Sport (Saturday Sports Roundup) or in languages other than English.
There are two internet streams: 64 kbit/s Joint Mono MP3 and 64kbit/s stereo AAC, to support a variety of listening client programs.
