The National Indigenous Music Chart is no longer being compiled, so Goolarri Media in Broome have wound up the NIMA Charts Countdown show heard at 3.00pm on Saturdays.
In its place on Feb 17, a special concert recorded on January 26 highlighting indigenous culture, music and language.
From Feb 24 from 3.00-4.00pm, we’ll bring you a new diverse indigenous music program of RnB, soul and hip-hop made by Radio Adelaide called Deadly Beats.
On Tuesday nights, we recently swapped Global Village with the one hour version of Garry Havrillay’s locally-made Continental Drift now heard at 10.00pm. Garry brings you cross-cultural music of the world with many new and forthcoming album releases. Global Village is now heard at midnight.
In case you missed January changes…
Sadly “Service Voices” is no longer being produced for the Community Radio Network. In its place at 7:30am Saturdays, “Lost in Science” brings you a gamut of the latest science news and issues.
At 7pm on Wednesdays, we bring you “Music for Beaches“, a top new show from 2SER of downtempo, mostly chilled-out, mostly electronic music. This replaces “100% Home Grown” which has also retired.
On Christmas Eve we bid farewell to Scripture and Song and thank Heidi Gifford for her strong commitment and contribution to 3BBR over the years.
In its place from Sunday December 31, Pastor Russel Blanchard’s Family Time at Calvary extends from 8.00am to 10.00am, as it begins its eighth year on 3BBR! That also means we farewell Russel’s Gospel Sounds of West Gippsland on Tuesday December 26, and we thank him too for producing this program.
This helps us consolidate our global music focus on Tuesday evenings;
- 6.00 to 8.00pm — Seth Jordan’s Tiki Lounge Remix with tropical, dub reggae and global sounds
- 8.00 to 10.00pm — Sam Nicita’s Echoes of Italy focussing on Italian pop tunes
- 10.00 to 11.00pm — Garry Havrillay’s Continental Drift highlights cross-cultural music of the world with many new and forthcoming album releases (one hour version made for the Community Radio Network).
- 11.00pm to Midnight — a replay of Rural News from the Gippsland Regional News team
- Midnight to 1.00am — Habib’s Global Village covers a wide range of traditional and pop music from around the world
Wednesdays at 5pm – We’re introducing a fun new show from community radio in the ACT called Jump Children, with Steve presenting vintage R&B and blues with a dash of soul.
So, Aussie Music Weekly will move to Saturday night replacing a replay of Blues, Roots & Boots (still heard at 5pm Tuesdays).
For many years, our overnight jukebox has been pumping out music of the 50s and 60s. We know that many of you have enjoyed that during sleepless nights, but we’ve decided to move on and give a lot more exposure to Australian artists. We’ll be introducing a playlist of 100% Aussie performers and releases since 1990, and we hope you will enjoy the change.
