  • This week's Feature Album comes from Jessica Pratt with her new full length, Quiet Signs.

Building upon the sounds of her first two albums, Pratt has sculpted a more refined, consolidated, cohesive album this time around, constructed via appropriately minimal instrumentation, allowing lush arrangements to cut through the mix. Layered guitars meet sparse piano and soft organs, complimented by light strings, all making way for Pratt's unmistakable weird & wonderful voice to be the rightful star of the show.

Out now via City Slang and Inertia Music
  • LOCAL FEATURE: Perth's Stephen Bailey (@smbailey) is as busy as he is talented - extremely.

Not only does he front modern Perth psych-rock legends @mt.mountain, but he has a burgeoning solo career that is only going to continue to expand with the release of his second solo full length, 9. 
Following up his extremely well-received debut album Silo, @smbailey once again takes us on a departure from the hazy, psyched out sounds of Mt. Mountain, instead opting for sun-dappled guitar riffs and delicate, dulcet vocals. Weaving an entirely cohesive tale of dreamy sounds, Bailey combines elements of indie-pop and alt-folk in a fun, mellow, inviting package, just in time for the end of summer, ensuring you will want to listen to the album more than 9 times.

  • Neon Picnic returns as we bring the radio to you live on Saturday March 23rd in the amazing surrounds of the Hyde Park Amphitheatre between 11am – 7pm.

Spend the day with the us and our line up of Saturday shows; Global Rhythm Pot, Homegrown, Drastic on Plastic and Jamdown Vershun, plus special musical guests. Join the RTRFM presenters as they play you their favourite tunes live and direct.

Come and bask in the musical majesty at this all-day event, as we chill out on the grass of Perth’s most beloved park. Bring the kids for some special arts and crafts activities from the team at Spaced Out, face painting from Lauren Salt, hula hooping and fun times.

Plus, the Mums and Dads can relax in our licensed bar thanks to Feral Brewing and Skigh Wines or grab a bite from Satchmo Café, The Tapi Truck and Summer 1954, or grab a coffee and ice-cream from Grey Means Well and The Milky Monster. 
Entry is free and you are welcome to come and go as you like. Pull up a slice of grass, bring a picnic, bring your dog and enjoy local music and Perth’s best radio station live.

Catch amazing live sets from Jere Sosa, with his relaxed Argentinian grooves, the indie pop magic of The Struggling Kings and local music troubadour Michael Savage.

Stay with us into the afternoon with Perth’s finest saxophone quartet Meraki, the out of this world sounds of Fourth State and the straight reggae jams of Zarm.
