RTRFM – A Musical History Director Davey Craddock Shares the Rich History of RTR

Monday 6th November / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

RTRFM invites you to celebrate our 40th birthday in a feast for the senses at The Big 40

Taking place at Perth Concert Hall on Sunday November 19, RTRFM is looking back on its history and bringing in a bunch of local musical mates to help celebrate.

Concluding this mega party is RTRFM – A Musical History, directed by Davey Craddock. RTRFM - A Musical History is a specially commissioned projection and live show that combines fascinating audio, photos and video from the station’s archives with key songs from WA music history.

This one off show will guide the audience through RTR’s unusual, sometimes rocky history, with the help of an all-star lineup of guest vocalists and musicians.

Director Davey has joined Caitlin this morning to share all the details of how he and the team have created a special homage to the Perth institution that is RTRFM.

The Big 40 – Sunday November 19, 3PM – 10PM. Perth Concert Hall
