Summer programming 2018-2019

3CR wishes our listeners and supporters all the best for a relaxing summer break, and looks forward to a year of political action and change in 2019. But remember, there's no need to change that dial! Listen up this summer for some great radio ... from psychedelic music to feminist perspectives - environmental blockading to rebel girls and wicked women ... and much, much more. Listen live, or listen back at your leisure - check out all the programming details and listen back to shows you may have missed here.

Burning Vinyl

The Old Bar's very own doorman Matt Gleeson has been doing his radio show Burning Vinyl on Fridays 2pm - 4pm for over 15 years now and June is when he's gotta raise some cash to stay on the airwaves. He's made half of what he needs and hopefully we can get him over the edge with this fundraiser show. Matt is at the Oldie pretty much every night of the year seeing every band that plays there. So he very well may be the person who sees more live music than anyone else in Melbourne. He's seen all your bands and probably played them on his show. Come down and help us keep him on air. This Tuesday 26 June at the Old Bar 74-76 Johnston Street, Fitzroy. Claws and Organs, Bodies, Noughts, and Claire Birchall. 

Sunday 11:00pm to 1:00am
Are you into riffs, licks and bands smashing skins with sticks? Every Sunday from midnight to 2am, join Fif for a pure rock magazine styled program, showcasing 70% Oz music including segments and interviews.
