Influenced by the Arab spring, globalisation, and social media, Arabic music is now as diverse as ever. Salaam aims to introduce you to the surge of new, modern and reinterpreted sounds of Arabic music ranging from trap, rap, RnB, pop and electronic music.
Missed it?Listen back now. In 2020 the Smith Street Working Group and the City of Yarra partner with 3CR to bring a retrospective of the past 7 years of the Smith Street Dreaming Festival - usually a day event held on Smith Street during NAIDOC week. Presented by 3CR broadcaster Viv Malo, (The Black Block), alongside Dave Arden and others live to air from the 3CR studios. The broadcast featured music from past festival performers and interviews with some of the key figures of the Smith Street Dreaming formation. Broadcast live on Saturday 18 July, 1-4pm.
We can't bring you our usual live prison broadcasts for Beyond the Barsin 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions. BUT we will be bringing you the voices of Indigenous men and women from the inside each day from Monday 6 July to Friday 10 July at 12-1pm. 3CR Indigenous broadcasters have been recording messages, cheerios, poems, stories, raps and short interviews with some of the inmates over the phone at the Dame Phyllis Frost Centre, Loddon/Middleton Prison, Barwon Prison, Karreenga Annex and Fulham Correctional Centre. NAIDOC Week has been postponed to 8-15 November, but we wanted to reach out to the men and women at this time to facilitate their voices, and tell them they are not forgotten. Please listen in. Audio coming soon www.3cr.org.au/beyondthebars2020
A heartfelt thanks to all of you who have donated to our June Station Appeal. We've really enjoyed hearing from our many loyal listeners and supporters, and have been humbled by your generous donations. Our Station Appeal is slowly bringing in the financial support we need to keep the station running for the next 12 months, but we are well short of where we need to be. Normally at this time of year we would be well on the way to reaching our $250,000 Radiothon target with fundraisers, gigs and other events. Unfortunately, many of the events that would help us reach our fundraising goals are just not possible. We're currently sitting on just $90,000. So with just one week to go to 30 June, we are giving the Station Appeal one last BIG PUSH! Thanks again for your support - it's really greatly appreciated. Donate today.
