Black Gold 1970s

Black Gold is a 5-part series that digs deep through the 3CR archive to present ... Black Gold. We take listeners from the 1970s right through to the present day with a look at how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander broadcasters at 3CR covered some incredible community events and significant political struggles. We’ll attend a land rights meeting in 1978, celebrate the life of broadcaster Lisa Bellear, and hear about the successes of the campaign to save Northlands Secondary College. We’ll also reflect back on the anti-Bicentenary actions in 1988 and get up-to-date with the ongoing struggle for sovereignty and treaty. Tune in each Wednesday from 7-8am for Black Gold.

Communication Mixdown

This Thursday 17 November, 6-6.30pm, 3CR's newest program Communication Mixdown casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week Jennifer Martin and John Langer will mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?

Jazz on a Saturday

The month of October this year will mark forty years of Jazz on a Saturday. On 2 October 1976 in 3CR’s first studio off High Street in Armadale, Roger Beilby and John Smyth faced each other across the Studio 2 panel (handmade from discarded ABC equipment) for the first edition of Jazz on a Saturday, presented then as now on behalf of the Victorian Jazz Club. Join the program’s presenters at a small public celebration held at 7.30pm THIS Wednesday 19 October at the Victorian Jazz Club’s monthly night at the East Malvern RSL. By happy coincidence, the band playing that night will be Radio Days. Supporters of the program are welcome to attend to help celebrate the anniversary in true jazz style.

THIS Sunday 9 October from 12-4pm the station opens up its doors to the community and invites you to come in and celebrate 40 years of radical radio.

Face painting for the kids, stalls, rolling station tours and the launch of the 3CR 40th birthday t-shirt. There'll be something for everyone!
