Double J have announced that for International Women’s Day next Monday, 8th March, they’ll be celebrating 50 “game-changing women of Australian music”.
The station is calling out to listeners for suggestions – asking fans to let them know “which female artists have helped you see the world differently, broken barriers or just created the music you love.”
“We want everyone from the ground breakers through to crowd pleasers, from current faves to the legends that came before them.”
You’re able to nominate solo artists, band members, DJs and producers via the triple j textline (0439 757 555) or the triple j, Double J and triple j Unearthed Instagram pages.
In addition, the station will be hosting 24 hours of songs, stories and discussions from women and gender-diverse artists across all three stations – triple j, Double J and Unearthed. On triple j, Ash McGregor will be joining Dave Woodhead on Lunch, Jess Perkins joining Hobba and Hing on Drive, and Bridie Tanner co-hosting with Declan Byrne on Home & Hosed.
On Double J, Zan Rowe will be kicking off IWD at 9am, with Karen Leng on from midday, Caz and Tim in the afternoon. Emma Donovan – pictured above, who recently scored an Australian Music Prize nomination for 2020 album Crossover – co-hosting Tower of Song with Henry Wagons that evening.
