WA Labor’s Pledge To Music

Monday 23rd January / presented by Jessica Warriner Coel Healy

The local Arts community in Perth may have taken a beating with recent funding cuts but there may still be hope.

The next West Australian state election is just around the corner and music is on the agenda. If elected in March, WA Labor leader Mark McGowan has promised to launch a Creative Music Fund to the tune of $3 million dollars.

RTRFM presenter Coel Healy speaks to Mark McGowan about the proposed initiative, followed by a response from Chief Executive Officer at WAM Mike Harris and RTRFM General Manager Stuart MacLeod about what impact this might have on the local music industry.
