Introducing…Playback: all Australian & New Zealand music every week on the radio and online

Thursday, 21 Jun 2018

Looking for something new to listen to on the ol’ wireless? Tune in to Playback, a weekly radio program, presented by APRA AMCOS, which features Australia and New Zealand’s best new music, while joining dots to the past. Each show is a unique musical journey – from folk to blues, psych to electronic, with exclusive live session recordings and feature interviews.  

Recent feature guests include Ryan Downey, Cat Canteri, The San Sebastian (Joel and Dan Crannitch), Lucy Wise, Emily Davis, This Way North, Josh Johnstone, Alice Skye, Even As We Speak, Carla Lippis, Underground Lovers, Cookie Baker, and Oh Mercy. To name but a few!

Host Paul Gough, formerly of Radio National’s beloved Inside Sleeve, maintains a voracious appetite for a wide variety of genres. He’s been making radio for 34 years, and he’s still as passionate today as he was when he started his vinyl collection at age eight.
