Music Victoria and the Community Broadcasting Association of Victoria are teaming up for “Play VIC Week”
August 6th ‐ 12th on Community Radio Statewide
During the first week of August, Community Radio Stations across Victoria are encouraged to feature our own Victorian Singers, Songwriters and Bands. One or two songs an hour in live shows, more if you like. Maybe even get some local musicians in for music live to air.
CBAV and Music Victoria will provide a range of Celebrity Promos, some interviews and work to set up some Station visits as well.
”Victoria has such a wealth of musical talent, and such a strong network of community radio stations, that ”Play Vic Week” is a great initiative. As the peak body for contemporary music, the celebration and promotion of Victorian artists is one of our key goals. Many community stations are already supporting their local artists, but this is a great chance for broadcasters to seek out what else the state has to offer. Radio is still one of the best platforms for artists to gain exposure, and it’s great for listeners as well, because often they can go and see these artist play at their local venue.”
Patrick Donovan ‐ Music Victoria CEO

The Australian Music Radio Airplay Project
Music live to air looks like being a big part of ‘Play VIC Week’, quite a few Stations are already very active in hosting live music sessions, even helping up‐and‐coming singers and bands with recording facilities. At Southern FM they have been doing regular live music sessions on Sunday afternoons since 2009 and the long list of muso’s that have passed through the Studios is full of now familiar names, many through AMRAP.
Don’t forget the Photos!
If you’re having music live‐to‐air or interviewing musicians, make sure to send us some photos! CBAV is planning a bigger project and lots of photos will help.
