In early 2022, we surveyed a number of our listeners and asked them what they liked and didn't like about our station. One common theme came through - we keep hearing the same ads over and over, every hour, every day.
As we have outlined on our Support Turn Back Time Radio page, we need to collect a modest amount of revenue every year to make Turn Back Time Radio a viable station - those advertisers we have been promoting have been providing that revenue for us since our inception as goRadio.Live in 2018.
So, we have come up with what we hope is a good compromise - a low-cost option that literally any business can afford that will enable us to collect sufficient revenue to keep Turn Back Time Radio going.
For $55 per year, including GST, you can have your business mentioned on Turn Back Time Radio a few times per week and we can remove the need for top-of-the-hour advertising.
Want to know more? Then, read on!
One of our favourite features of goRadio.Live was the hourly listener shout-out - click here for an example.
Everyone we spoke to loved hearing from our listeners and so we have expanded that to include business shout-outs. Every hour, we'll have a couple of shout-outs - some from businesses and some from individuals across the week. As well, we'll have our supporters listed on the Our Supporters page, providing you with more exposure to our audience. On average, your announcement will be played 3 or 4 times a week - maybe more while we build up the collection.

We are so grateful for your support - we need 80 businesses to get on board to support us. Thank you for being one of them!
Let's do it - support Turn Back Time Radio!
If you have made this far - firstly, thank you. Your support means a lot to us.
Before we get started on the payment, let's explain a few things:
- Please keep your voice recording to the standard format:
A greeting "Hi, it's Shane from Mountainside Wines in Warrak" Web site or phone number "Find us at www.mountainsidewines.com.au" or "Call us on 03 5354 3279"
If you don't have either, you can say "Find us on Facebook" or similar.
And the tag line "You're listening to Turn Back Time Radio";
- If you can't work out how to get your greeting attached to the payment, process the form and then send the audio file later via email (helloturnbacktime.radio) or SMS (0499 972 346).
- You are very welcome to purchase multiple Business Supporter packs if you would like to (maximum of 3 per business to avoid flooding the playlists). To do that, however, you will need to process three separate payments and create three different voice recordings (that is, three different people from your business, please).
- We accept Visa and Mastercard on the form below. The payments are processed using the highly secure Stripe payment platform - we don't see or keep the credit card details on our servers. Many, many businesses use Stripe for their payments so you should feel very secure in using the payment form below.
One last thing - and it is important. When you click on the payment below, you are setting up an annual subscription of $55.00.
This means that, on the same day every year, a new payment will be scheduled from the same card.
If you do not want that to happen, please email us at helloturnbacktime.radio at any time between making your payment and the anniversary date and ask us to cancel your subscription.
