PBS has some exciting programming changes starting in March.

Jess Fairfax and Leah Avene will return every Monday between 1pm and 3pm with All Our Stories, focusing on music from around the globe and the songs, culture and experiences that tell the stories of first peoples and emerging communities in Australia and beyond.

That means on Tuesdays from 7pm – 8pm Adriana takes Opalakia into an evening timeslot (FM and streaming). Tune in for a mix of Greek, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern music both old and new. Later on Tuesdays, from midnight – 2am (Wednesday) Peter Bramley’s Club it to Death delves into the underground history, and current movements in Australian and New Zealand punk and indie music.

For those who like it fat and funky, we’re also introducing The Mothership with Declan James onto the program roster every alternate Wednesday between 2am and 6am.

PBS listeners may also be aware that after some five decades on radio Jim McLeod has decided to hang up the headphones and will finish up with PBS in mid April. Jim is one of Australia’s most revered broadcasters and his contribution to PBS and Jazz on Saturday has been considerable. We’re delighted to announce that former Jazzbeat presenter Tom Sedunary will be taking over the reins of Jazz on Saturday when Jim leaves. PBS would like to thank Jim for his dedication to the station, and welcome Tom to the role.
