Radio and the Australian Floods

You will have heard about the flooding
in Australia
. Radio stations and networks such as
Australia’s ABC have played a crucial role in reporting this
disaster and bringing communities together. In fact, this blog from an abc station
sums up what they are going through to bring their
listeners the information needed. I was speaking with a young
Australian radio producer, Nic Kelly, via email the other day and
he said he was working on an audio piece that would run on a number
of stations. He shared it with me last night. This piece is running
on roughly 30 stations around the country in the breakfast time
slot tomorrow morning including the RadioWest, SEA FM and STAR FM
networks in Australia – as well as a station called HOT 100 in
Darwin and a few others too. Take a listen: It’s amazing how words
and sound can sometimes express emotion more than pictures ever
can. And if you feel moved to donate to the Flood Relief fund, you
can do so here at http://qld.gov.au/floods
