 ABOUT US

Radio Port Douglas 107.1 FM - Port Douglas Australia
A bit of History:

Radio Port Douglas first went to air December 1999 (then owned by Jay Amundsen and Henry Ellison, current owners are Michael & Helen Gabour), and yes, we did indeed party like it was 1999. The first radio waves to emit from Port FM began their existence within an old single-watt transmitter, which at the time was broadcasting from an antenna fixed to the guttering of a private residence atop Flagstaff Hill. Early music playlists were basically comprised of the directors’ CD collections and any other music we could find lying around at the time.

Radio Port Douglas 107.1 FM continued to entertain the local community (sometimes a fledgling radio station can amuse the local public purely through lack of experience) throughout 2000, and thus began 2001: A Radio Odyssey - an epic journey of a small group of passionate radio crew from the top of Flagstaff Hill to their new studios in the Pavilions complex on Macrossan street, where they remained for the next three years.

Being a transient town, the station has seen many DJ’s come and go… at the time of writing, the only DJ’s who have lasted the distance to see the move into the studios at the Marina Mirage are Dave 'Double-O' Evans,
and Dale Priem.

Michael & Helen Gabour were welcomed as new partners in January 2003, and have since become full owners. With a fresh attitude (and a small injection of capital) the station spent the rest of 2003 improving in every way. To this day the tide of 107.1 bumper stickers continues to spread throughout the shire, and locals and tourists alike have come to appreciate how truly unique Port Douglas’ own radio station has become - incorporating local news, issues, and personalities, and being adventurous enough to steer away from the steady stream of soulless commercial pop music provided by larger city-based corporate radio stations.

Over the years, Radio Port Douglas 107.1 FM has produced all varieties of audio gold – live mayoral debates, interviews with people like John Butler, Shane Warne, Lucas Neil, and David Bellamy, promos from international celebrities like Buzz Aldrin, impromptu live Australian acoustic jams from the likes of Nick Barker, the Screaming Jets and GangGajang… if I had to picka few of my most precious memories, I wouldn’t – I’d name them all. But unfortunately space is limited so

“The Voice of The Douglas Shire” — since 1999.
