Yapa kurlangu linpa. Yapa kurlangu ngurungka nyampurla!

PAW Radio is all about celebrating everyday life in remote Central Australia. We aim to keep our communities connected, entertained and informed. PAW Radio is a platform for sharing local language, local music and local stories.

The PAW Radio Network is heard in 14 communities across 450,000 square kilometres, with 10 radio studios linking through our Yuendumu radio hub. We also stream online and on the VAST Satellite Channel 918.

We broadcast live request shows, feature stories, documentaries, oral histories, news and information campaigns. 

Warning: this website may contain the voices and images of deceased Aboriginal persons. Aboriginal viewers should exercise care in viewing and listening to the content.
