S1E5 - Queering the Airwaves for 30 years

Queering the Airwaves

Gaywaves was a lifeline for queer people in Brisbane in the early 90s.

Listeners from out of town would drive just within range of the 4ZZZ signal every Wednesday evening to be part of an accepting community - in fact they still do. 4ZZZ has had continuously running programming for the queer community in Queer Radio & Dykes on Mics since the early 1990s, both programs are still on air to this day.

In this episode, hear the story of Gai Lemon who was an announcer on Gaywaves from 1990 - 2000.

Thanks to Ironing Music for letting use their music in this episode. This episode was produced by Aleisha McLaren, host of Stacks On on 4ZZZ. Listen to Stacks On on demand here, or tune in to 4ZZZ on Wednesday mornings.
