The School Broadcasting Network (SBN) and 94.1 FM, 3WBC‘s Music Matters has received a top finalist nomination for the 2013 CBAA Awards in the ‘Best New Music Program’ category.
At just 14 years old, Frank Dixon and Miani Rose are two very dedicated and talented young radio producers who host Music Matters, SBN’s newest youth radio program. With a diverse line up of guests such as Wally de Backer (Gotye), Anne Wood, Kelebek and Dr Allan Zavod, Music Matters aims to deliver a highly ‘edutaining’ formula of interviews and live performances, as well as mentoring from industry professionals on a wide range of topics.
Music Matters began in July this year when it launched as an independent 1 hour program. In 2012, the original Music Matters, a segment on another SBN show ‘Primary Perspectives’, won the CBAA Award for ‘Best New Radio Talk Program’.
Composer and Doctor of Music at Melbourne University Allan Zavod said: “Music Matters is a valuable conduit for young artists, giving them the opportunity to experience live performance on air. This program encourages the development of our young performers as they strive to become Australia’s future bright stars. For listeners of all ages it’s a heart-warming, informative & entertaining show that is making a significant contribution to Australian cultural life by encouraging young performers and listeners alike to develop their artistic talents.”
