Who we are
RIM FM 100.1 has been transmitting since the 17th of March, 2001.
Our 1st program was presented on air by the late Rob Bellchambers (President) and we are situated in the grounds of the Fassifern Community Centre (Carinity) in the cosy little town of Boonah located in South East Queensland, Australia.
Rim FM 100.1 is for the community, by the community. We are run by members who have dedicated themselves to bringing a local radio station that services the Scenic Rim and beyond.
What we provide
Throughout the week, RIM FM 100.1 covers just about all genres of music from country to classical, contemporary to folk, bluegrass to pop, plus latest releases and a wide range of Independent labels and artists.
News is covered each hour and each presenter brings in their own unique taste of music, interviews, covering of local events, local history, all with a wide range of topics.
Each morning you can catch all your headlines, Queensland News, Air Sport News and World News Monday to Friday. Several Christian programs are also broadcast on Sundays. When there are no presenters on air we have mixed hits playing with news every hour.
Birthday & Anniversary Calls
Every morning Monday through to Sunday at 7:30 AM, we have birthday and anniversary calls that can be announced for that special person in your life. You can even choose a favourite song request to go with it.
Plus, each person with a special call during the week automatically enters into our Friday draw where they could win a Birthday Cake (for Birthdays) or Coffee and Muffin for Two (Anniversaries). In addition each month’s birthday calls (one entry per person) will go into a Second Chance Draw on the last Friday of each month to win a $40 bistro voucher from our sponsors.
Contact the station on 5463 1228 during the breakfast programs to register your birthday/anniversary calls today. Alternatively, you can use the contact page form but please allow us up to 2 days notice to ensure your call is announced in time.
Buy, Sell & Swap
Buy, Sell & Swap is our free community trading post. From all types of furniture, to animals, to cars, caravans, trucks and other farm equipment. Trade anything you want to buy, sell or even swap each Saturday morning.
If you’re located in south east Queensland and northern New South Wales, chances are that you can tune into our local radio station the old fashioned way. Simply set your radio to “FM” mode and select (or tune to) the 100.1 frequency.
We broadcast 24/7 all year around and with the recent addition of live streaming, you can listen to Rim FM anywhere in the world!

RIM FM 100.1 is a ‘not for profit’ (or NFP for short) Association that works hand in hand with the Community. The cost of running a community radio station is huge and is run by volunteers from within the community. Funds are raised by members and supporters, using various methods available including sponsorship, memberships, grants, raffles, street stalls and donations.
These funds are used to cover site rental, studio and tower, electricity, phone, Insurance, etc. If you’re interested in sponsoring a show or the station, then check the Sponsorship page.
RIM FM 100.1 provides an outside broadcasting (OB) van to cover community events from the field including broadcasts from the Springleigh Country Markets on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays each month.
In addition, we are also covering Christmas Parades, Late Night Shopping, the annual Boonah Show and more. If you wish to have your event covered, please contact our Station Manager by phone / fax / email, or by post – details are on our contact page.
New presenters are always being sought, to train, using our very friendly training method for panel, CD and computer use. The program adjusts to each individual’s needs and time available.
Thank you to our supporters
Last, but never least, we would like to say a big THANK YOU to all our sponsors, members and supporters, for all your support and help in keeping your local Community Radio Station up and running throughout all these years.
