About Us


The Music Broadcasting Society of S.A. provides FM transmission of fine classic and jazz music across the Adelaide metropolitan area and on line. Being community supported radio , 5mbs is totally run by volunteers.


A crucial factor in keeping the music alive is the generosity and goodwill of sponsors and subscribers. Unavoidable costs relating to equipment, premises rental, operations, transmission, utilities etc. are always something to be addressed and any form of support is gratefully received. Share the passion.

5MBS supports the local arts community and this extends to concert recordings and the promotion of recitals and other events. Local groups and musicians planning on performing in South Australia are invited to get in touch with 5mbs
