Community broadcasters are renowned for supporting new, local, independent and particularly Australian music. Many musicians have had their fair airplay and interviews on our stations. We are in a unique position to play and engage with a broad range of musical styles. Our support of the music industry and diverse music played is one of the key reasons people listen to community radio.
The 2008 McNair Audience Research Survey shows that two key reasons people listen to community radio stations are:
- They play Australian music and support local artists
- Specialist music or information programs
