Schedule changes due to Daylight Saving

As Daylight Saving time commences in Australia on Sunday 5 October, you will notice some changes to our radio schedule. Our flagship Pacific affairs program, Pacific Beat, will remain in its regular morning and afternoon time slots. But you will hear some of your favourite programs an hour earlier than you are used to.
