PBS will be inducted into the Music Victoria Hall of Fame

Melbourne community broadcaster PBS 106.7FM is being inducted into the Music Victoria Hall of Fame.

PBS started broadcasting in 1979 dedicated to sharing and promoting diverse music not heard on other stations and as it celebrates 40 years of broadcasting, this induction is seen as significant and timely as it cements the contribution PBS has made to Melbourne’s music community.

General Manager, Adrian Basso, says, “PBS is delighted to be inducted into the Music Victoria Hall of Fame in our 40th year. We are very proud of our place in Melbourne’s vibrant music community and thank everyone who has played a part in PBS along the way. Stay tuned for the next 40 years and beyond!”

The induction will take place at the Music Victoria Awards on Wednesday November 20 at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
Also being inducted into the Hall of Fame are the legendary Vika and Linda Bull, and Music Victoria’s Patrick Donovan, says, ‘’Music Victoria recognises the deep contributions both PBS 106.7FM and Vika and Linda Bull have made to the fabric of Victorian music and culture and is proud to present them both as Inductees to the Music Victoria Awards Hall of Fame in 2019.’’ 

To further celebrate turning 40, for the first time, PBS’ history is being collated in a printed book and made available to the public. 40 Years of PBS Radio will feature rare, and in some cases, previously unseen photos, posters, and historical artefacts that capture the rich and diverse history of the station.
