CRN's Australian Music Is Bloody Great - now available on Community Radio Plus!

Amy Leiper, 14th July 2022
Australian Music Radio show, Australian Music is Bloody Great, is now available on Community Radio Plus. Produced by Amrap, the program showcases an incredible range of Aussie acts and is played across the Community Radio Network (CRN). 

Each week, the program features topline Aussie acts talking up and playing their recent Australian music faves, Australian Music is Bloody Great is a way not only to discover the incredible range of sounds being produced in Australia, but it’s also a reminder to share them and support our artists. First airing in April 2020, the program was conceived with the idea to give bands, who had been impacted by the pandemic, some exposure at a time when it was difficult to get.

Andrew Khedoori, Amrap's Manager, said, "We started Australian Music Is Bloody Great in response to the pandemic cruelling Australian artists' chance for exposure, but it continues today as a great opportunity to hear from Australian artists about who they love in their scene and beyond. Australian artists have their ears to the ground with what's happening so it's where you can hear a lot of real passion for local sounds. You just might discover your favourite new Australian music on AMIBG - it's brilliant you can do that on Community Radio Plus now."

This week Australian Music is Bloody Great features Sydney-based HANDSOME, a band that produces anthemic electronic pop that endorses fluidity and embraces androgyny. Her new EP, titled BLAME, is accompanied by a three part short film of the same name. HANDSOME shot and directed this work in the middle of the Australian desert and the films seeks to celebrate the power in community. This week on Australian Music is Bloody Great, HANDSOME reveals the Australian artists that inspire her process and aesthetic. Features include MiieshaThe BuoysKucka and more! 

Australian Music is Bloody Great is produced by the team at CBAA’s Amrap and airs on the CRN on Fridays from10:32am to 10:59am AEST with the download available shortly after. For access to CRN programming and support, call the CBAA on 9310 2999 or email .

The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) is excited to announce the launch of a new Australian Music Radio show across the Community Radio Network (CRN) this week.


If you've ever been in contact with the Amrap team, chances are you've spoken with Amrap Support Officer Mitch. Mitch is the go-to for all things Amrap providing members and musicians alike with support, whether helping artists upload their music to as well as members with any and all Amrap equiries. Mitch's extensive knowledge and love for music makes him a valued member of Amrap, and wider CBAA team.


Australia's music punches above its weight on the world stage, but at home it can be hard for new acts to be heard amongst industry titans. Community radio provides a place for up-and-coming artists to be heard, broadcasting around 37% Australian music, well above the required quota of 25%.
