A PLATFORM FOR INDEPENDENT ARTISTS AROUND THE WORLD SHARING MUSIC AND CULTURAL EXPERIENCES
Gayle Austin (Sydney):
Was Australia's first female rock dj
As founding members of the innovative government sponsored 'underground' radio station Double J, Gayle and her colleagues set the template for the national FM station, TripleJ.
Over sixteen years, Gayle's on-air presence, programming and production skills made her a radio icon, an inspiration for subsequent generations of broadcasters.
Gayle holds a BA (Hons) in Media, Communications and Critical Cultural Studies from Macquarie University, and is currently working on her PhD at Sydney's University of Technology.
mr.K (Brisbane) :
fondly recalls at the age of six, sitting alongside a little portable record player and pulling from a tower of 45rpm's, singles from The Supremes, Rolling Stones, Normie Rowe and Connie Francis and spinning them at his older sisters' parties.
The grown ups seemed to dig it and he has been sitting in his jim jams spinning, loving, learning about, collecting and sharing music ever since.
With older siblings whose musical tastes spanned the late 50's, 60's and early 70's, a 'nothing is out of bounds sonically' attitude characterises mr.K's eclectic taste to this day.
When not constructing imaginary soundtracks, mr.K teaches within the Creative Industries faculty at Queensland University of Technology.
