2SER Supporter Drive – Week 2 Phantom Dancer

2SER subscriber drive


2SER is a community radio station. Your radio station.

It’s also 300+ volunteers with a passion for high quality radio.

It’s an exciting grassroots movement.

It’s created by aware people like you and me to educate:
– to make sure you get your favourite real music by your favourite non-commercial artists,
– to bring to you what’s really going on in your community and in your world by  giving you independent news and current affairs unfiltered by politically connected billionaires and millionaires.

It’s yours,  24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


I’m a 2SER volunteer and a supporter. I’ve produced and presented The Phantom Dancer on 2SER for you since 1985. I volunteer and I support 2SER financially during the Supporter Drive very year.

What Alex Turnbull, son of former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, has pinned to his Twitter feed, applies as much to politics, as to how active and engaged you are as a radio listener so as not to be a soulless puppet to vested interests:

“If you want blind unthinking faith you can go to a place of worship. If all you are is barracking for a football team in politics you’re just a useful idiot footsoldier for the vested interests that run the place. Wake up.” Alex Turnbull

Wake up. Vote against the crass babel of vested interests on-air and instead support your grassroots community radio, 2SER.

Visit 2SER Support or call 9514 9500


On the light side of 2SER, but no less important to many of you who would feel depressed if the show wasn’t on-air, is The Phantom Dancer.

Nowhere else can you hear a non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s-1960s radio and TV every week.

If I stopped volunteering at 2SER and stopped supporting financially every Supporter Drive, I’d be a cop-out – a mindless drone for populism and big money popular culture – neither of which cares for me and you.

And there’d be nowhere else for you to hear your favourite Phantom Dancer mix.

Likewise, without your financial support for 2SER, this radio station could be lost forever.

Supporting 2SER is simple and painless. Just one dollar or two a week, direct debited weekly from your credit card, is all you need to do.

Visit 2SER Support or call 9514 9500 to set this up.

It costs $1 million a year to run 2SER. Your dollar every week helps.

Think of 2SER Supporter Drive like a radio version of a Go Fund Me campaign. Only we’ve been doing it for longer than the World Wide Web.

It’s fundraising. For a cause that affects your quality of life every day – 2SER.

Just like an online funding campaign, there are set supporter amounts. These are:
$40 concession
$80 standard
$160 passionate
$600 life member

Or, you can support with any $$$ amount you like.

Everyone goes in the daily prize draw and the major Supporter Drive prize draw.

Everyone who supports 2SER gets exclusive access to 2SER on-air and online giveaways during the year to concert and theatre tickets at great venues to see your favourite local and overseas artists.


This is the second week of the annual 2SER Supporter Drive.

Thank you to everyone who went online and called 9514 9500 to support community radio 2SER during last Tuesday’s Phantom Dancer.

I look forward to hearing from you online or calling 9514 9500 to fund 2SER during this Tuesday’s The Phantom Dancer, 12:04-2:00pm AEST (+11 GMT).

I have a great non-stop mix of swing and jazz from live 1920s – 1960s radio and TV lined up for you to say THANK YOU.

Inside the Phantom Dancer 2SER study filmed just last month. Yes, I’m a volunteer, volunteering 16 hours a week for you to prepare and present The Phantom Dancer. It ain’t slick, it ain’t crass – it’s real, it’s grassroots, it’s you…
