Sunshine Coast station Hot 91.1 has banned Perth music on it’s station in the lead up to the netball grand final, where WA will play Queensland.
The decision means that listeners will not hear bands such as INXS, Baby Animals, Jebediah, Cassie Davies, Birds of Tokyo and Eskimo Joe in the days leading up to the big clash.
Hot 91.1 is an official sponsor of the Sunshine Coast Lightening, who will play Perth Fever at the Perth Arena this Sunday.
Station manager David Graham says the move is intended to show support for the station’s Lightning radio partner.
“We decided that this was a great course of action to show Hot91’s full support of the Lightning’s bid to go back to back in this Sunday’s grand final…
“We’ve been a key sponsor of the Lightning from before last season started, so we’re very excited they’re in with a chance to win the final again…
“Win, lose or draw, we’ll be pumping out the likes of INXS and Eskimo’s Joe to our listeners from Sunday night after the game.”
