4RPH HELPS BREAK DOWN THE BARRIERS TO THE PRINTED WORD.
Welcome to the on-line home of 4RPH 1296 AM, your radio reading service for people in the greater Brisbane region.
4RPH, a community radio station, brings the world of print to the 250,000 or more listeners in the greater Brisbane region who, for reasons of age, disability or literacy problems, cannot assimilate or read information in print.
It is a unique radio reading service using a wide range of printed material, including newspapers, magazines, books and journals as the basis for its programmes.
4RPH combines the immediacy of radio with the depth of information normally found only in printed material. This results in a highly effective and accessible means of closing the information gap often experienced by people who have difficulty reading print.
Access to printed material is something most of us take for granted. To be denied access is to miss out on a wide range of vital information.

QRPH Ltd, which manages radio 4RPH, is a charitable organization formed with the sole aim of providing the people of Brisbane with access to the printed word through the medium of radio.
It is managed by a Board of highly-qualified and experienced people elected from the membership.
The QRPH receives a substantial amount of Government support. The rest of the station's operating costs must be raised in various ways, including sponsorships, access time, memberships and donations. Assistance in any of these forms is always welcome.
All on - air work is done by volunteers, who are the backbone of our service and our most valuable human resource. They give their time freely to research, produce and present the 16 hours of local programmes that go to air every day of the week.
