PBS 106.7FM are set to become the very first tenants of the new Collingwood Arts Precinct, a revitalisation of the former Collingwood TAFE site. It marks the end of a 16-year tenure at Easey Street which has produced fantastic memories for the community radio station. Before that, PBS called St Kilda home from its inception in 1979.
Speaking on the relocation, longtime PBS General Manager, Adrian Basso, couldn’t retain his excitement.
“PBS is thrilled to be moving to the Collingwood Arts Precinct. We’re really looking forward to moving in with other creative organisations and working together to make Melbourne an even better place to be a musician or music lover.
“Our move to the Collingwood Arts Precinct means our hundreds of volunteers will continue to have a base in the heart of the city from which we can organise events and activities for thousands of music fans and reach hundreds of thousands more through our broadcasts.”
On top of the move, PBS has also announced a huge NYE party as part of their popular event series, Soul-A-Go-Go. Heralded Melbourne soul and funk DJs, Richie 1250, Mike Gurrieri, Miss Goldie, Vince Peach and Shio will be spinning tunes while a special live performance from Cookin’ on 3 Burners with Stella Angelico will also be going down.
