We will have many new presenters and more programs including all our current popular serials and much more.
We are gradually upgrading our website and this will include a new format so stay tuned to hear more about this.
This may take some time so please be patient.
Something we would like to mention is the people who contribute to our local content and have not been recognised. In particular the people who assist in our Saturday morning sports show. These people give up their time to chat to us and bring us up to date with local and national sport.
We would like to thank these people who we hope will continue in 2017 to entertain us every Saturday from 9 am:

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 at 2yyy would like to announce that in 2017 we will again be broadcasting the Young Cherrypickers games in the Group Nine Rugby League Competition.
This broadcast has gone from strength to strength in the last couple of years. In 2016 the broadcast was extended to start at 1:30 pm on Sunday and we intend to continue this in 2017. Our great team of Steve Woolford, Ray Spring and Stuart Norton will again be on board. With the early start the boys organise interviews with local legends of the game and many other interesting people. We also do sideline interviews allowing on time and present a man of The Match Award every week to a Cherrypicker player win or lose.
We also try and give results of all the Group Nine games and U16, U18, League Tag and Reserve Grade games.
We will broadcast all the games from Alfred Oval and most away games. The only limitation to broadcasting the away games is lack of facilities at other locations. If we cannot do an away game we intend to take regular crosses to the studio of scores and results.
This the year the Cherrypickers have great new coach in James Woolford and besides having a lot of local talent at their disposal have brought well elsewhere including New Zealand.
We will endeavour to be more proactive on this site and bring you all the club news in the coming months leading to the season and this includes list of signings and a feature on up and coming local players.
Further to this we have a number of great sponsors for the call. Saying this we are always on the lookout for new sponsors at 2yyy and this broadcast would give your business great advertising.
If you are interested please contact us on 0263827200 or email us at email@example.com.

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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

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 continues to get involved with the local community and are proud to announce the live broadcasting of local rugby league.
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.
