We appreciate your patience while we get the website and archives updated and adjusted.

the archives are currently struggling with a recent update but stay tuned daily 3pm - 11pm for great programming on 101.1FM in Rossland.
As of midnight at New Year we are now officially broadcasting on 101.1FM and boy did we turn our transmitter on with a party!! A packed Miners Hall saw Marty flick the switch to turn the transmitter on and then partied on into the night. We had an FM costume theme for the party and Rosslanders went to the very limits of creativity to fill the hall with some weird, wonderful and often scary looking "FM's". Some of our favourites included Failed Marriage, a Fluorescent Mariachi dancer, a Flaming Marshmallow, a Flirtatious Milkmaid, a Freakin' Minotaur, a surfer's Fatal Mistake and the guy offering Free Mammograms! Big thanks to Pete at Ross Vegas who had given us a heap of goodies to give away and those with the best costumes were suitably rewarded.
Appropriately the event ran on Kootenay time and midnight was celebrated about 10 minutes late but I don't think anyone really minded, especially not Ali Meredith who walked away with the season pass for Red Resort in the draw at midnight.
Our thanks go to all the DJ's who kept everyone's feet moving, all the volunteers who helped make decorations, ran the bar and checked tickets, and a special mention to the guys at Subway for providing us with some emergency change when the bar ran (financially) dry.
So from everyone at Rossland Radio Co-Op we wish you all a Happy New Year and thanks for a memorable start to our life on the FM dial.
