Katrina Hughes, 6th December 2019

Are you a community radio broadcaster or station? Join the mailing list to receive First Sounds, a compilation of new and emerging First Nations musicians brought to you by the CBAA's Amrap and indigiTUBE. It’s so easy - just fill out this online form.

One of the top four reasons people aged 15+ listen to community radio is because they play Australian music and support local artists*. Now more than ever, community radio is hungry for Australian music and looking for the most diverse artists from across the country. With the likes of Baker BoyBriggsThelma Plum and Emily Wurramara (pictured above left) paving the way, songs from First Nations artists are in high demand.

By registering your interest, you'll get the First Sounds CD in the mail in February 2020 and you can hit play on your next radio show soon after!

If you know other broadcasters who could be interested in receiving this complimentary CD please forward this email and form onto them to ensure they get a copy.

There will be more First Sounds compilations throughout 2020. 

Thanks to Amrap and indigiTUBE for providing community broadcasters access to unsigned First Nations musicians!
