Louie the Fly, JPY, Don Bradman named in this year’s Sounds of Australia list

Ten sound recordings with cultural, historical and aesthetic significance have been added to the National Film and Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia collection for 2017. 

There’s Kasey Chambers in there, and John Paul Young as well… Also among this year’s inclusions are the Play School theme, Louis the Fly and a song about our most famous cricketer Don Bradman.

There are now in excess of 120 sounds, including a bonus recording from Australia’s Amateur Hour.

Established in 2007, the Sounds of Australia is the NFSA’s selection of sound recordings which inform or reflect life in Australia. Each year, the Australian public nominates new sounds to be added, with final selections determined by a panel of industry experts, including radioinfo’s Steve Ahern.
