Our format consists of an up-to-the-minute playlist of hot, credible club music.
Our slogan ‘Dance Floor Radio’ sums up what we do perfectly: if it’s on the dance floor, it’s on RAW. In fact, we’re pretty confident Nobody Plays More New Dance Music, and we pride ourselves on playing the most cutting edge selection of House, Indie Dance, Electro, Trance and Urban in Australia.

In 2011 we’re celebrating 11 years on air with this brand new website, our fifth compilation CD, new shows from some of the biggest names in dance music, club tours, and special events right around our broadcast area, so get involved, let us know what you think of the station, and we’ll see you on the dance floor!
Founder and CEO
Angelo (Angy) Nacson
Founder and CEO of Raw FM.
Raw FM brings together three decades of Angy's wide-ranging experience in the dance music industry...
In the 80s and 90s... Angy was successful running a nightclub marketing and promotions business by combining passion for DJing with his unique and creative flair, and by delivering some truly memorable events for clients such as Fantastic Voyage, Cream, Fusion, Riche (formerly Juliana's), Beach Rock and 15-18 Jump Street (Central Coast). It was during this time that Angy first hit Sydney's airwaves as the co-producer and presenter of "Night Tracks" the Dance Music Radio Show which ran for almost 10 years on a Sydney radio station.
Recognising the potential to take Dance Music to an even greater audience, Angy ventured into narrowcasting with the launch of 99.1 Raw FM on the Central Coast in January 2000.
Now, with a portfolio of over 50 terrestrial broadcast licences, Angy has extended Raw FM's coverage to the NSW Far North Coast, Central Coast, South Coast, Sydney's Northern Beaches, and inland to Canberra, Albury, Perisher, Jindabyne and its first Victorian licence in Shepparton.
Angy's knowledge and expertise is highly regarded by both industry and government authorities. He served as a Board Member of ASTRA for 4 years (former industry association) and is a Foundation Member of the new body, ANRA—the Australian Narrowcast Radio Association—currently in his sixth year on the Board.
Angy would like to acknowledge, in particular, the invaluable assistance, guidance and expertise of Chris Fraser, Sam Sergi, Gareth Watkins and Rob Carr who continue to contribute to the success of Raw FM. Equally, Angy would like to thank the listeners, sponsors and supporters who have helped make Raw FM the heartbeat of dance music broadcasting.
