ABC TV has a fantastic history of producing iconic Australian music TV shows - Countdown, Beatbox , Rock Arena & Recovery. Slightly different formats but all presented a weekly focus on the Australian music scene by profiling national and international musicians. At a time when there were no computers, youtube etc it was an efficient way to find out about the latest Australian and overseas music, The formats had broad appeal and all ages used to watch, often together. These shows have proven to be an invaluable documentation of Australian life and culture. The current Australian music scene is incredibly healthy due to the potent impact of the Triple J, Unearthed & Double J Radio This suite of stations is the envy of other countries, ask any touring band. Incredibly however there are still many Australians who don't discover these amazing artists. A significant challenge for todays listeners is there is so much music it is almost impossible to keep up. A weekly curated Australian Music TV show would clearly serve up the highlights and provide an efficient taste maker function to a time poor audience. In addition this would provide an incredible opportunity for Australian musicians to increase their exposure to a domestic market and respective music sales. The ABC has acknowledged the extraordinary talent of respected National Music Correspondent Zan Rowe but have not developed a TV platform to truly exploit her talent. Can the ABC TV please join the dots and give consideration to developing a national music TV show with lead host National Music Correspondent Zan Rowe. ABCTV makes fabulous TV uniting people across the country with similar interests. We have a national gardening show, what about a national music show? #whysohardabc #doyourselfafavour #builditandtheywillcome
