CBAA celebrates Aeron Clark as part of National Volunteer Week

Amy Leiper, 17th May 2022

As part of National Volunteer Week, today CBAA celebrates Aeron Clark, a volunteer at Edge Radio 99.3FM. She is known for her dedication to Tassie music, expert content creation and advocating for musicians and community. As well as hosting her program, Aeron volunteers at Edge Radio 99.3FM as music coordinator.

Aeron is the best person to host The Map, Edge Radio’s premier Tassie music program – because she lives and breathes Tassie music. The Map has been nominated as a finalist for CBAA’s Best Music Program and Best Music Program Presenter in 2019 and 2020. Her amazing relationships and her input have resulted in a real respect for the station, as well as curated the all-important station “sound”.

For over 10 years, Aeron has championed local Tasmanian music and community radio, ensuring the tether to both remains strong. She is a regular at gigs, making herself known to musicians, venue managers, and promoters, and is also a member of the Music Tasmania board. The Map is a continuation of Edge’s long history in supporting Tasmanian music – it is an immense responsibility that Aeron does not shy away from.

Aeron’s expertise has resulted in her regularly being asked for advice about programming Tasmanian events, including providing suggestions for support slots for touring interstate/overseas acts. She has contributed to the curation of local acts for festivals such as Dark Mofo/Mona Foma, the Homebrewed stage (Tas emerging music) at Falls Festival Marion Bay and Edge’s fundraiser concerts.

Aeron keeps in contact with the artists she plays and creates further opportunities for them. Her attention to the Tasmanian music community demonstrates her understanding of the life of her show outside of the live program and a commitment to supporting, promoting, and producing live music in Tassie.


Aeron Clark was a 2021 CBAA finalist for Outstanding Volunteer Contribution. If you know someone who you think has made an outstanding volunteer contribution to your station, you can nominate them for the Outstanding Volunteer Contribution award in the 2022 CBAA Awards.
