The Impact You Have with 1079 Life: Alexander.

Written by on September 14, 2020

1079 Life are inviting you to partner with the station to make a big impact.

Coming up this Thursday 17th is your chance to be a regular part of the 1079 Life family by pledging to be a “Life Partner”. Life Partners are people who decide up-front on an annual amount they wish to donate to 1079 Life, and then spread out their gift, usually over monthly instalments. Their donation is made via a nominated credit card or by direct credit.

It’s through people like you, partnering with 1079 Life, that the station is able to impact Adelaide in a way that tangibly changes lives. Over the next week we will share some of the stories that have impacted us.


Many of us face issues on a daily basis. For Alexander it has not only been having a disability, but also not having the support around him to feel that he was able to achieve. Yet despite the opposition, which has included homelessness, relationship breakdown and “a little bit of time in a tiny cell” Alexander has finished a double degree and is currently studying honours which he says is “truly a miracle, absolutely a miracle”.

“I hadn’t really ever been one to listen to Life FM, to be honest. But I listen to it every day now, it’s my go to. It’s because it’s so positive”. Alexander has noticed the huge difference

1079 Life has made in his own self-image. He noticed that with other stations he felt “put down” and unvalued. He said “You can start to be influenced by what we hear and what we see around us. I find that I’m able to sort of you know, music that’s played on Life, the prayers that we hear out loud and the stories from other people, it’s all positive, it’s all uplifting.”

Alexander recognises the value of sowing in to the station isn’t just about making himself feel good. He wants to see other people have their lives turned around in the same way his was.

You can partner with 1079 Life and help make a tangible difference in someone else’s life. Find out more about what a Life Partner is here.
