Casey Radio is operated by South Eastern Radio Association Incorporated, also known as 3SER, and broadcasts on the 97.7FM frequency.
We started test transmissions more than 35 years ago on May 6, 1984 as Market City Radio 88.3FM broadcasting from the Dandenong Market.
The test transmissions were conducted four times a year one week at a time and continued until the station was granted its full-time licence in May 1991.
It was about the same time we moved to the Fountain Gate Shopping Centre, later relocating to a self-funded premises in Webb Street, Narre Warren in 1996.
In September 2002, we again moved to our current studios in Cranbourne East where we have celebrated almost two decades on air.
Since moving to Cranbourne, the station has undergone a multi-million refurbishment and now boasts two studios featuring state-of-the-art equipment and software, office and production space and an outside broadcast van.
Our studios feature the latest digital-based broadcast audio distribution systems often used in commercial radio.
The station was supported by the City of Casey and Telstra in 2006 to secure new broadcast antennas and a transmission building.
Ongoing support from the Commonwealth and Community Broadcast Foundation also enabled us to purchase and install a new FM transmitter to improve our signal.
3SER was officially rebranded Casey Radio in 2014 to reflect the mutual, ongoing relationship with our major sponsor, the City of Casey, and our broader community.
The term Casey Radio, however, was unofficially used from the time the station relocated to Cranbourne.
Casey Radio has a proud history of diversity in broadcasting and still has several current presenters who were on air at the time of inception.
