What song do you want to hear played on the radio?
Have you ever want to hear your favourite song played on the radio just for you. Well, now you can. National Radio Broadcaster, Triple J, invites you to the programmer at its May Requestival, where you choose the tunes.
The very first Requestival kicks off for one week on Monday, May 25, 2020, and will be going from 6am–9 pm every day, until Sunday 31 May 2020 at 6 pm. And it comes at a time when live music festivals are on hold.
Listeners have the chance to request the songs they want to hear. Just tell Triple J why the song matters to you. Share a memory or a moment that makes the song important and on top of your significant to you list. It's that easy. You could also be in the running to win a Triple J hoodie for your efforts. Not bad.
If you want to take charge of the music you want to hear, simply download the Triple J App or update the app to make your request. And maybe you could be singing along to your favourite song.
Triple J started on 19 January 1975, born from the Double J station based in Sydney. Known for its annual Hottest 100 countdown played on Australia Day and initiatives to discover new bands through its Unearthed competition, Triple J has been known for supporting local and overseas acts whose early recordings were less likely to appear on commercial radio like the mighty Midnight Oil, Foo Fighters, and The Pixies.
