Melbourne's STEREO 974 commenced a new country music programming initiative last Monday the 14th of April. Each weekday between 9.00am and 6.00pm the station will be playing country music with an emphasis on promoting Australian country music artists and the industry.
Station manager Rod Boyd said "For quite some time now Australian Country Music in Melbourne has not had a vehicle to receive the airplay that it deserves. STEREO 974 will now become this vehicle. So now Country Music has a home - STEREO 974
