From the very start, PBS 106.7FM has led the way for all Melburnians to experience live music with broadcasts from the back of the Prince of Wales in St Kilda more than 30 years ago.

That strong live music tradition continues with PBS Studio 5 Live, weekly live performance broadcasts from the PBS studios. The vibe is grassroots, with an unwavering commitment to quality and diversity.
The sessions consist of a half hour live set and a short interview with one of our announcers.

For info on upcoming PBS Studio 5 Live performances, tune in to the Breakfast Spread’s Studio 5 Archive on Tuesdays at 7.15am or follow us on Twitter @pbsfm. You can also keep your eyes on this page for info on what's ahead, watch, or listen back through the on line audio archive.

The Studio 5 alumni includes Kylie Auldist, Billy Bragg, Arrested Development, The Dirtbombs, Heavy Trash, The Drones, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Screaming Females, Terry, Xylouris White, John Foxx, Joe Chindamo, DJ Baku, Eilen Jewel, Syl Johnson, The Bamboos, Justin Townes Earle, Fred and Toody and Mista Savona.

PBS Studio 5 Live is proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
