Welcome to Save RN Music
This website has been created to fight the ABC's decision to cut music programming from Radio National (The ABC recently announced that 4 of Radio National's brilliant and much-loved shows - The Inside Sleeve, The Daily Planet, The Rhythm Divine and The Live Set - have been axed with no replacement). This decision has disastrous implications for the independent and non-mainstream music industry in Australia, and for listeners Australia-wide, particularly in remote or regional areas.
Please sign our petition and share your stories about Radio National Music Shows
Musicians & Independent Music Industry: Please share what RN Music Means to you and describe how these cuts will impact your sector.
Listeners: Share what RN Music shows mean to you personally. Do you live in the city, the country? What role do these shows play in your day-to-day life?
