Since 1979, community broadcaster PBS 106.7FM has been an integral player in Melbourne’s music scene– with more than 80 specialist music programs ranging from soul to garage to country to jazz – PBS is dedicated to nurturing, inspiring and championing Melbourne’s diverse music community.
During PBS’ time on air, it has been able to record seminal Melbourne acts at the peak of the creative powers of performance, as well as build a series of useful resources to support the volunteer announcer community. Being a community organisation, the station has had to find low budget alternatives to keep up with the changing broadcasting technologies, acquisition processes and storage/preservation.
Owen McKern (Programs Manager) and Mara Williams (Volunteers manager) will be offer a tour of the station as well as discussing this unique and community based collection, in all it’s forms.
