Lofty Community Media Incorporated was founded in 2017 by a small but enthusiastic team of people with one common vision: to build a valuable cultural and community asset for the Adelaide Hills. We do this for the love of communication, the love of music and the love of our fellow Hills dwellers.
After a lot of hard work and overwhelming support from our local community, we achieved one of our Lofty Goals: an FM broadcasting licence. Every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Lofty889 simulcasts on 88.9 FM under a Temporary Community Broadcasting Licence. We call this a simulcast because we are simultaneously broadcasting via the FM band as well as online.
Our 24/7 live stream continues to be accessible via a range of platforms and devices. You can listen to Lofty at home on your stereo through a smart device, at work on your computer, in your car through TuneIn … almost anywhere, anytime.
Lofty continues to be managed and operated by volunteers – we have no payroll, so everything you see and hear is created and curated by people doing what they do purely out of love. Our Board, which is made up entirely of Adelaide Hills locals, is dedicated to growing and maintaining Lofty.
We always welcome new members with fresh ideas and a sense of adventure to join us.
