PBA FM aims to entertain, inform and educate listeners about the immediate community while offering an overview of state, national and international matters. Formed in 1979, PBA FM conducted a successful test transmission in April 1981 and a full licence was granted in November 1982, with broadcasting commencing in January 1983. PBA FM is heard across the northern suburbs, and also across much of metropolitan Adelaide on 89.7 on the FM band.
PBA-FM values the importance of the volunteer role and offers them the opportunity to further develop personal and technical skills, provides on-going training and acknowledges their contribution with appropriate recognition. The current weekly broadcast schedule is available on the PBA FM website – www.pbafm.org.au
