Triple J will be celebrating International Women’s Day today by only playing songs by women across all three of their stations: triple j, double j, and NOVA969 (just kidding; the other one is, of course, triple j Unearthed).
In addition the stations will feature only their female hosts: Veronica Milsom and Alex Lee on Breakfast, Zan Rowe on Mornings, Gen Fricker at Lunch, Coda Conduct on Drive, Sarah McVeigh hosting Hack, Linda Marigliano on Good Nights, Bridget Hustwaite on Home and Hosed, and Pagan frontwoman Nikki Bruman on Short.Fast.Loud.
And that’s just the triple j presenters. Check out portions of the media release sent out by the station below, for more programming specifics.
triple j’s Hack, has crunched the numbers again on the representation of women in the Australian music industry. They’ve explored the gender splits between artists in the charts, on festival line-ups, award nominations, sitting on boards, running indie labels and of course getting paid. Find out the answers in these handy infographics.
triple j Unearthed is featuring ‘Seven Important New Voices in Australian Music’, including interviews with Boat Show, Glitoris, The Football Club, Le Pie, Miss Blanks, Moaning Lisa and Pagan, sharing stories about how they’re challenging the music industry and initiating change. triple j Unearthed will of course also be bringing you the best independent music made by women from all around the nation, with Unearthed fave Maggie Collins hosting Tops at 5.30pm.
