June is all about the 90’s on Double J as the station takes a look at the decade and asks,was this the greatest decade in music?
From Thursday to Sunday nights, Double J has curated 90s countdowns, special online features, dedicated 90s J Files, Classic Albums and Live At The Wireless’, and a very special 90s themed Artist in Residence by Spiderbait frontman, KRAM (pictured right).
To kick off the month long celebration of the 90s, Double J is showcasing Australian music.
Dan Condon, Double J’s Music Editor, who was part of the 50 Best Australian Songs of the 90s judging panel has told radioinfo:
“In principle, it was a pretty simple task. Double J staff chose their top ten favourite Australian songs and we tallied them up. But in practice, it was a nightmare for everyone. How do you choose the ten best tracks from such an amazing decade in Australian music? There were more than a few last minute amendments to peoples’ voting, and we’re still lamenting some of the songs that didn’t make it. But we think it’s an incredible snapshot that reminds us just how strong and diverse Australian music was at the time. And you don’t need rose coloured glasses to appreciate that.”
Double J is offering the 50 Best Australian Songs of the 90s, along with the 50 Most Overlooked Songs of the 90s, 50 Most Important Female Artists of the 90s and 50 Best Live Acts of the 90s as Caz Tran and Chit Chat countdown the best music of the decade 1pm every Saturday in June.
Double J can be heard on mobile, digital radio, Channel 200 and online at doublej.net.au
