Join us for a tour of this free State Library of Queensland showcase, experience a recreation of a vintage 98.9FM recording studio and enjoy the sounds of Country as you explore the history of this transformative community radio station.

Protest in the air, a fresh voice on the airwaves; the first Indigenous radio station in a capital city began broadcasting in the 1990s… bringing an exciting new sound to our stereos. I heard it on the radio looks at 25 years of 98.9FM Murri Country and its influence in giving a voice to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on the radio.

This tour is part of the Brisbane Writers Festival program. Check out the Brisbane Writers Festival program for more.
