PBS Radio Festival is celebrating the beauty of broadcast

PBS Radio Festival

The annual event shines a light on what sets radio apart.

Public radio is the beating heart of the local music scene. Instead of some algorithm, there’s a real person out there (a few in fact) hunting down the best new music and the most mood-fitting classics and lining them up for your pleasure.

It’s the kind of personal touch that’s missing from the streaming services era – a constant, reliable voice; someone to update us on local news while picking just the right assortment of songs to soundtrack our lives.

Started in St Kilda in the late 1970s, PBS Radio is a Melbourne institution. They set out on a mission to support the rare and under-represented voices in the local scene and that’s what they’ve done for almost half a century.

Anyone who signs up to the station during May or June will also be rewarded with a limited-edition PBS Radio Festival 2023 T-shirt, as well as a download of PBS’ compilation album, bumper stickers, a membership card and the station’s print Mag, Waves magazine, two times a year.

Tune in to the station at PBS 106.7FM. To find out more about PBS Radio Festival, running from May 15 to 28, head here
