After over 10 years of radio broadcasting via the airwaves of Townsville and numerous remote Aboriginal communities in Queensland the Townsville Aboriginal & Island Media Association (TAIMA) who operates 4K1G FM Too Deadly! has now taken its broadcasting to the world via the internet 24 hours per day 7 days a week.
TAIMA 4K1G FM Manager said "4K1G is the first Indigenous radio station that we know of who has accomplished this". "It was quite a simple process and did not cost a lot of money to establish".
Long serving 4K1G broadcaster Velma Gara said "It was a big step for this organisation when we started to broadcast to remote Aboriginal communities in Queensland via satellite, but broadcasting to the World on the internet, that's awesome".
In a matter of weeks 4K1G has received emails from all over Australia, New York, New Zealand, Vancouver British Columbia, Fiji, Canada, Jamaica and Africa.
