Lime FM is your positive alternative!
There’s plenty of music around that tries to bring us down, songs with lyrics that demean women or have messages we just don’t want our kids to hear.
Lime FM‘s music is positive, clean, with good messages we all need to hear.

Where we’ve come from
Lime FM began in the early 1990’s as RHEMA FM. It was started by a few committed and visionary Christians – South East Christian Broadcasters Inc.- with a strong desire to see Christian radio in the region.
RHEMA FM started humbly on very low power on 99.9 FM in a caravan that had several homes, from paddocks to people’s driveways! Originally under a temporary license, the station could only broadcast a certain number of days a month but the people loved what they heard and their support saw the ABA (now ACMA) grant RHEMA FM a full-time temporary license.
From there a new home was found in the old railway building on Railway Terrace which allowed the building of fully fledged studios with room for expansion.
Every year the ABA approved the license to be continued, eventually granting a full-time permanent license and a switch to the more powerful 104.9 FM frequency.
Through God’s provision, South East Christian Broadcasters purchased a communication tower located on ‘the Bluff’ allowing our signal to reach deep into the region and also provide income via leasing signal space to other organizations.
The station continued to grow and, after nearly 18 years as RHEMA FM, the board decided to change its name to Lime FM to more closely reflect who we are as well as our mission.
In October 2014 we launched repeater broadcasting for Naracoorte on 99.3 FM and surrounding districts thus thoroughly covering the Limestone Coast and beyond.
Today Lime FM offices and studios are located in St Martin’s House on Edward Street.
