Community radio has been a vital source of local emergency information and space for community connection throughout the recent bushfire crisis, with Shadow Minister Michelle Rowland recognising the sector's contribution in Parliament House last week. 

The CBAA has reached out to almost 80 community radio stations in bushfire affected regions, collecting stories and hearing how the fires have affected stations and volunteers, including Alpine Radio in Mount Beauty Victoria whose volunteers worked through the night to broadcast emergency warnings from Forest Fire Management Victoria. Read some inspiring stories.

UNESCO calls on stations to uphold diversity

World Radio Day (WRD) is tomorrow 13 February, and celebrates radio as a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity and constitutes a platform for democratic discourse. This year's WRD is divided into three main sub-themes ...

ADVOCATING for pluralism in radio, including a mix of public, private and community broadcasters; 
ENCOURAGING representation in the newsroom, with teams comprised of diverse society groups; and
PROMOTING a diversity of editorial content and programme types reflecting the variety of the audiences.
The CBAA encourages all community radio stations to plan for something special on WRD. Remember to share your posts, tweets and Instagram photos using the hashtags #WorldRadioDay #WeAreRadio #WeAreDiversity, and tag @CommunityBroadcasting.

Music moving the CBAA Amrap charts

Yorta Yorta artist and producer Neil Morris  - aka DRMNGNOW  - has been growing from strength to strength with a string of releases exploring Indigenous rights, culture and colonialism. His latest single, Survive, is sitting at number six on the Metro Chart for the second week in a row. Kelly Brouhaha has topped the Regional Chart this week with Benjamin, an alt-country tune with a raw vulnerability we’ve come to expect from Brouhaha’s songwriting. See who else has made the charts this week!

If you are a community broadcaster and looking to find the latest tracks from across the country, get involved with Amrap's AirIt and start browsing what Australia's independent music scene has to offer!

I'm Marea, I've always loved music since I was in the cradle!
My parents raised me in a vibrant music house: Mina, De Andrè, Puccini.
I don't think I've ever let a single day go by without listening to some Music.

Music, in my opinion, has the power to create a parallel world where you can take refuge both when you are cheerful or happy that when you are sad or melancholic.

I like to listen to all genres a bit even if I prefer Maitre-Gims, James Blunt and I've always been a fan of Madonna and Laura Pausini.

I started studying singing and guitar when I grew up, listening to music was no longer enough.
Driven by my own teachers, I started composing and writing in a notebook that is always with me ..
Some songs are born in French, others in English and others in Italian.

Je Regarde l'Ocean is a love song that I wrote inspired by my trip to Normandy where I love every time I come back as if that is my home .. the beaches of Calvados have really stolen me heart.
