“I have enjoyed listening to Salt for years now. Starting my morning drive and then at work with Kristian and Eliza is always a great way to put a smile on your dial. They are a crack up and I love how Kristian manages to dig himself a hole most mornings, Eliza is obviously full of grace. Keep up the laughs.”

– Ed

“This is the BEST radio station on the Sunshine Coast! Great stories, uplifting messages and wonderful music! I am encouraged everyday and my family are impacted by God’s word as it seeps into them. I also love the banter between Christian and Eliza, keep up the good work Salt and thank you for making a difference”

“I have been struggling with motherhood a lot lately, and not having much of a family support network…. I love listening to salt for everyone’s calming voices and positive reinforcement of kindness, hope, and bible verses.

I was on my way home from work today actually not wanting to go home, and heard someone saying that it may seem hard now but you will get through it and it will seem insignificant and the bond with your children will be what matters….So thank you for always reminding us and encouraging us to be our best self.”

“I listen to Salt 106.5 everyday. With 3 kids, I’m very much a mum taxi and knowing they are listening to a radio station that is family friendly is a win. As a aged care support worker I do a lot of driving for work, and as I drive my beautiful members around I keep Salt radio on in the hope they hear a song or story that speaks Jesus. ”

When I’m passing the Sunshine Coast I always tune to salt for inspiring music and information to keep my spirits high. I cringe from the loose talk on other stations and the incorrect use of my Lords name especially. If salt wasn’t around, I would be driving in silence. Thank y’all for your part you play in my life. Even if it’s only a small part – Frederick

The fun laughs with Christian and Eliza in the morning drives to work and the crack ups with Luke and Susie in the afternoons! All the presenters are great in their own unique ways with encouragements and lighthearted chats. Keep up the great work Salt 106.5 team”.

“It’s been quite difficult to cope at times with the emotional struggle since my marriage break up. About three months ago I was driving back from being up the coast for the day and my tears were just rolling down. I don’t know why but I changed the radio station I was listening to and have not changed it back since. I didn’t even know about your radio station and now I tell my family and friends about it. I listen to Salt 106.5 at work, in my car and at home pretty much every day and night. Thank you for your beautiful and encouraging words”.
