In early September, the CBAA's Amrap invited a troupe of community radio Music Directors and station staff to Brisbane for the annual BIGSOUND music industry conference. During the jam-packed 3 days of workshops, panels, live music showcases and sessions, Amrap provided delegates with important opportunities to forge closer connections with community radio.
