Bay FM’s newly elected management committee is calling everyone to come and take a trip back to the love-child decade of the 70s with a Bay FM fundraiser ‘Boogie Wonderland’ this Saturday December 20 at the Bangalow Bowling Club.

DJs include Dan Jupiter, Al Royale, Noodles, Scoota and Casual P and North Coast Events will provide décor and lighting.

Bay FM’s president Oliver McElligott said, ‘We are making this fundraiser the first of many that will help support the station.’

‘Bay FM also wants to give something back to the community by getting us all together and throwing a fabulous discotheque fundraiser. If you need a ride to the party, Tim from the Magic Bus will be picking up people from Byron and Suffolk Park.’

To pre-purchase tickets for the discotheque or to book a seat on the Magic Bus (essential), phone Bay FM on 6680 7999.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Gather up your ruffles and rustle along to Bay FM’s “Boogie Wonderland” as it promises to be ‘the real thing’ although Russell Morris won’t be there at the Bangalow Bowling Club on Saturday, December 20.
    Sure to be fun as this is a fundraiser with a Boogie twist. There is Dan Jupiter and he is off the planet, Al Royale with the old 007 style. Scoota! I love the way he peddles his music. And of Course Casual P. Enough said when North Coast Events put their spotlights on the decor. They are not just decoration. They are the events, man.
