Australian Music Web Radio Station Needs Recruits
The NSW Labor Council this week launched their new online initiative for the local Australian music industry - Wobbly Radio.
Wobbly will giving emerging music acts free exposure on the world wide web via a new all-Australian music site which will deliver streaming on demand.
The Wobbly Radio site will allow net surfers to search for new artists songs directly, or listen to the latest online radio programs showcasing the best new Australian music.
NSW Labor Council secretary John Robertson says promoting Australian culture is a core union value and we are thrilled to support the Australian music scene.
"Wobbly Radio will offer Australian artists the chance to be heard by an international audience," Robertson says
The site aims to give a helping hand to young acts that want their music heard. The site will allow new or existing artists to upload their own MP3's, which will be added to the Wobbly play-list. The site will also allow Australian musicians to attach a photo and biography to further educate listeners about them and their music.
Each week the latest Australian releases will be streamed to global online listeners, with feature albums, a featured MP3 of the week and special themed programs. MP3's and music programs distributed through wobblyradio.com are not downloadable, so there's no way the artist's music can be captured or pirated.
Up and coming or established Australian bands can head to wobblyradio.com and follow the links or email MP3s and info to mailto:[email protected]
CD's and hard copies of biographies and photographs can also be mailed to:
Wobbly Radio, NSW Labor Council, Level 10, 377-383 Sussex St Sydney NSW 2000.
