Have you seen this puppy on your travel’s and wondered what ‘Need a Lift?’ might mean? Well, thanks to a special partnership with Bishopp Billboards, we’ve got a very special billboard up to get the word out about what’s so different about 96five – especially if you ‘Need a Lift’!

At 96five, we’re family!

As this city’s family radio station, you will only hear engaging radio content that adds value and is suitable for the entire family….. which makes 96five so different across the FM dial. This means that each and every day you will hear great family tips and advice, positive uplifting music, information about family friendly events around Brisbane and an uncompromising message of hope.

We’re a firm believer in the quote “garbage in, garbage out” – by listening to 96five you’re going to be encouraged, inspired and included in the 96five family.

We want to lift your spirits, give you a positive outlook on life and a reason to get up in the morning!

Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers are committed to creating a “new normal” for Brisbane. We invite you to be “part of the change” for a healthy, strong and positive city.

So, why not switch over your radio dial to 96.5FM (or stream us online) and take the 2 week challenge – listen to 96five for the next two weeks and hear the difference.

Don’t take it from just us though – here’s what some of our listeners have to say!

I am a fairly new listener after changing from a radio station that I listened to for many years. I didn’t like how they sacked a DJ so I had enough. I started listening to your station and I love the positive and inspirational vibes that I get every day on my travel to and from work Monday to Friday. FAYE


Thanks for a wonderful, safe, encouraging radio station. We love 96.5. KEVIN & SIMONE


My wife and I really believe in what you do for this city. As first time parents to a now 1 year old, who takes in so much more than we realise, it is very important to us to have a radio station that feeds hope into his ears. Both now and in the years to come. God Bless. SCOTT
