Community Radio is the life blood for Melbourne’s creative community and one of the reasons that Melbourne is such a great hub of musical and theatrical diversity. Over the years creative people have been drawn to our city after they realise there is a platform for them to have their music played and for them to talk about their artistry, that place is through the airwaves of community radio.

One of those Community Radio stations 3cr was established in 1976 to provide a voice for those denied access to the mass media, particularly the working class, women, Indigenous people and the many community groups and community issues discriminated against in and by the mass media. Over 400 volunteer programmers present more than 120 programs that go to air each week. The station broadcasts in approximately 20 languages including English, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It’s always been a struggle financially for 3CR to pay the bills and continue to broadcast which is why 3 fabulous Melbourne bands are playing at the NSC to support 3CR and present an entertaining afternoon of music.

Bj Morriszonkle is a one man band, composer, weirdo, stoked father, songwriter and huge Columbo tv show fan. He sometimes makes some sort of cartoon music, sometimes depressed cowboy pop songs, sometimes junk that sounds like b-grade sci-fi movie music from the 50's and sometimes trash / clown metal. It's all over the top and exists completely in it's own screwed up universe.
Winter Sun are an eclectic Rock outfit. Expect space, dynamics, melody, harmonies. Sets are a hypnotic roller coaster ride. The songs have dark and twisted lyrics and swing from dirty arse blues to bitter-sweet ballads. Soon to release their album 'Black Lips, Dead Trees' on Spooky Records, watch out for the single/clip 'Deadly Nightshade’.

Ekranoplans - music critic Michael Helms had this to say about the band - “Like some sort of refurbished dirty power station in Kazakhstan ready to reap in the profit the Ekranoplans burst onto the scene last night to rock the Yarra. With lead ranter Simon Strong (Pink Stainless Tail) whirling dervishly, Master G Goldberg pushing pedal power to the fore and the rhythm section sounding like they'd just stepped off the stage of the Howard Stein Music Academy circa 1973 this bunch of hard rocking psychedelic Soviet sympathisers demand your attention…

Please show your love towards Community Radio and join us for this not to be missed show.
