The Board of 2yyy wish to announce that after much work our radio licence has been renewed for the next 5 years. Under ACMA rules all full community broadcasting licences have to be applied for and reviewed every 5 years. This has to be completed 12 months prior to the 5 years.
Saying this we again apologise for not keeping this website up to date. However due to the mountain of activity at the station combined with volunteer movements etc this has been difficult.
Over the coming months we will endeavour to bring this site up to date. Included in this will be details of all our new volunteers. We will also have a new news page that will keep you informed of all the happenings in the station and community.
We are always looking for volunteers at 2yyy. If you have a special interest in any areas of radio such as on air presenting, office work, technical work and any other area that my help us please contact us at the station 44a Lovell St YOUNG NSW 2594. Our phone number is 0263827200 and our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Annual General Meeting was held on the 7th May and we have the majority of Board Members re-elected albeit in different roles this year. Greg Cullen decided not to nominate as he has other ventures in mind. We thank Greg for his valued assistance. The following are your Board members for 2018/19
President – Patrick Watkin. Patrick was Acting President taking over from Tony Gentle earlier in the year. Patrick was Vice President last year and has been a Board Member also for a number of years.
Vice President – David Munnerley. David is a great attribute to our Board. He has great experience in Board management and has been on our Board for a number of years. David is also President of LFE.
Secretary – Tony Gentle . Tony has had many years in Associations at Board level. He has had 24 years at Board level in sporting Associations and has been on 2yyy Board for a number of years. He was President last year but stood aside earlier this year for personal reasons.
Treasurer – Kerry Payne – Kerry has been a long term Treasurer of 2yyy for a number of years also. This is a very important job and Kerry has decided to continue on with her great work.
Other Board Members
Jenice Mason – Jenice is the hardest working member of the Board. She was Secretary for the majority of the year and also our Volunteer Co-Ordinator. Jenice spends many hours at the station and does a great job. Her passion for travel means she has stepped aside from Secretary and she is missed greatly at the moment.
Betty Smithers – Betty is also one of our long term Board members and also one of the hardest workers. She is a great attribute to the station and is always on hand to help out.
Yvonne Dudman – Better know as Bonnie D she is the latest addition to the Board. Bonnie is well know and popular to all our listeners. She is our Truckin’ Country and Aus Country lady and will be great attribute to the Board.

On Saturday the 19th November 2yyy ran a BBQ to raise funds for Can Assist Young at the Donges IGA car park in Lovell St. The BBQ raised a total of $375.00.
The board of directors would particularly thank Robert and the staff for the use of the tent, the BBQ and the supply of food for the day. We would also like to thank Graham and Kathy Marshall from Greycat Enterprises who donated the drinks.
A big thank you goes to all the volunteers who helped on the day. A special mention goes to Pat Watkins who was the main instigator and organiser for the function.
Can Assist are great organisation and all the funds raised in Young stays in Young to help cancer patients and we were very pleased to assist them.
We do aim to assist the local community in any way possible and will strive in the future to help worthy local organisations.

We love our country music at 2yyy. Saying that we also love to play a range of other music and interesting and informative programs at your local community station. We have lots of different genres and new volunteers that are too numerous to mention in this article. Some programs that are tried and tested since our inception include or Monday to Friday request program from 9 am, our Saturday rock and roll show on Saturdays at 3 pm and our Saturday night request show from 8 pm. As well as these popular shows we have our Friday night rock show from 6pm as well as all night rock music on Friday from 9pm, Mish Mash on Tuesdays from 6pm and Irish music on Sunday from 10 am. Other shows that have been around for a while include our Christian show from 7pm Sundays, Monday night music mix from 6pm and Ground Swell with Jim Fridays from 3 pm. One new show that has proved a smash hit has been a great fun show from Dolly and Midge at 3pm Wednesday.
We apologise if we have forgotten to mention all our shows but at 2yyy we aim to please the community and play a wide range of shows and programs.
If you have any ideas on any programming or anything else regarding the station please write us a letter or drop a letter into our suggestion box at the station. As well as this you can send us an email to email@example.com.
We are also on the lookout for new volunteers and you do not have to be on air to be a volunteer. We are always on the lookout for new volunteers in the office.
As well as this do not forget we stream 24 X 7 from this website. Just follow the link.
Finally we will be updating the web site in the near future and will inform everyone of all our volunteers including both on air presenters and our valuable office staff.

2yyy would like to announce that we have many changes in mind to please our many great listeners both in Young and districts and world wide on the net.
Firstly we do apologise that our web site has not been kept up to date as we liked but this will all change in the near future as we look like a complete update to its format.
Their is an acting board in place at the moment who have been working overtime in order to keep the place running smoothly. This consists of Tony Gentle (formerly Vice President) as Acting President, Dave Munnerley stepping up as Vice President, Kerry Payne is now Secretary/Treasurer. Other members include Jenice Mason, Betty Smithers, Greg Cullen and Patrick Watson who has filled the recent vacancy left on the board.
We have been flooded with new volunteer applications at the moment and are working to fill as many vacancies on air as follows. One of our main aims is to widen the variety of shows and music genre played by the station. One prime example is the new show on Wednesday afternoon presented by Dolly and Midge that has received rave reviews since its recent inception.
Stay tuned to the website for many more posts to learn about our exciting future

2yyy kicked off the season last weekend the 27th April 2014 with the broadcasting of the Young Cherrypickers First Grade game against Cootamundra from Alfred Oval in Young
Our new team of Harry Scorse , Tony Gentle and Wayne Nolan together with the expert comments from Steve Woolford broadcasted not only live into Young and District but around the world through our live streaming.
We intend to continue this every Sunday during the the football season from 2 pm to 5 pm. At present we intend to call home games only but this may change in the future.
Special mention must go to young Harry Scorse who did a great job for his first live ever call and Steve Woolford whose comments compared favourably to the great league legend Peter Sterling.
2yyy are inviting local business to consider sponsorship for these broadcast as we already have had a great response to our first call.
Any interested parties can ring the station on 0263827200 during business hours to discuss or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
