Triple M kicks off ‘OzTober’
Triple M is celebrating homegrown Aussie talent all month with the return of ‘OzTober’.
From hits by Russell Morris and John Farnham in the ’60s, through to tracks released in the 2000s by Silverchair, Shannon Noll and Spiderbait, Australian music will be front and centre at Triple M all month long.
A daily lunchtime show will be hosted by Dave Gleeson of the Screaming Jets and Dave Faulkner from the Hoodoo Gurus.
“Aussie music is at the very heart of Triple M and this October we pay tribute to how these artists have shaped our culture,” said Triple M head of content Mike Fitzpatrick.
“Each day Triple M will put the spotlight on the artists, the songs and the stories that have shaped Australian music which continues to grow and evolve.
“The Easybeats, ACDC, INXS, Cold Chisel, Silverchair, Amy Shark, Vance Joy… the list is a very very long one. Not only are we excited to feature their music but listeners will gain an insight into their world both then and now,”
To coincide with the launch of OzTober, Triple M’s Ultimate BBQ Soundtrack has also been released.
The compilation album has two discs, one full of ‘Cooked’ electric tunes and the other of ‘Raw’ acoustic tracks.
Listeners can also win tickets to Triple M’s OzTober garage session with Paul Kelly, The Living End and Birds of Tokyo on October 29.
