RDUnited, the free RDU Loyaltly App, is gaining momentum this year. With a growing membership, it is now possible to combine radio and online advertising with the added benefit of being able to get into 12,000 pockets.
RDU has also teamed with the UCSA bringing you "friends with benefits", a partnership making it now possible to reach students. This allows students to redeem discounts on campus and around town through the RDUnited App.
The Soundsgood.guide is our newest feature, allowing people to post their gigs for free while keeping their finger on the pulse with Christchurch's latest musical listings all in one place.
