triple j is thrilled to announce that Dig Music, the digital radio station we took over last year, will be re-launched as Double J.
From Wednesday April 30, Double J will play you new music and also celebrate the iconic music you grew up with, bringing with it unprecedented access to almost 40 years of triple j interview and sound archives. Former triple j presenter and Spicks and Specks team captain Myf Warhurst will launch the station with a new program 11 – 3pm weekdays.
She joined Matt And Alex for the announcement yesterday morning:
“It’s going to be a whole lot of new music and a lot of stuff from the archives as well,” she said. “it’s for people who love music, and also love a bit of music history. I’m really excited!”
Making musical history, Double J will kick off at midday Wednesday 30 April, at a live broadcast simulcast across triple j and double, where Myf Warhurst will reveal the full Double J programs, presenters and innovative music content.
triple j Manager Chris Scaddan says: “We have wanted to build a station like this for a number of years and now, with your help, we are really proud to deliver Double J. While it won’t be a throwback to the music of the original Double J, it will be a station that takes the best elements of triple j’s past – a name, a presenter and the incredible archives, thrown headlong into the future with the best new sounds around. It means even more airplay for Australian music and more of the values and ethos that make triple j so celebrated around the world.”
From Wednesday 30 April you can tune in to Double J on your mobile via the ABC Radio App, online at doublej.net.au, on your digital radio or TV.
