We are a specialist music radio station, with a vision to nurture, inspire and champion Melbourne's diverse music community. If you feel you'd be a musical fit, or would like to hear PBS progressively expand its sounds and it’s your dream to be an announcer, we encourage you to apply for the PBS announcer course.
