New national radio show to play all-Aussie music, hosted by artists
The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) has announced the launch of a new Australian music radio show across its Community Radio Network (CRN).
Just like many in commercial radio, artists often get their first play on community radio.
Australian Music is Bloody Great will showcase the incredible range of Aussie acts, many of who have lost their livelihoods due to the cancellation of concerts, festivals, tours and shows.
Featuring topline Aussie acts talking playing their recent Australian music faves, Australian Music is Bloody Great aims to help communities discover the incredible range of sounds being produced locally, but it’s also a reminder to share them and support our artists.
The first few shows are hosted by the likes of Sampa The Great, Teskey Brothers, Genesis Owusu and Husky, with many more coming on board.
Australian Music is Bloody Great is set for broadcast on community radio across Australia.
With over 400 community radio stations located across the country, and an average of 37% Australian music played on community radio each week, to six million listeners, community radio is the natural home for Australian music, no matter what it sounds like or where it comes from.
“Sharing and supporting is what we do,” CBAA said in a statement.
Australian Music is Bloody Great is produced by the team at CBAA’s Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (Amrap) and will air from Friday, April 10.
The show will be available live and for download to community stations via CRN.
