It may seem wicked to some, considering the scale of suffering the US mid-west defaults have caused across the globe, but I feel I must make a call-out to anyone interested in the music and culture of this wonderful harbour city. In the six short years fbi radio has been gracing the airwaves of Sydney, it has served unstintingly to foster and promote local artists, writers and musicians who too often have the seat out of their pants in a city very much obsessed with the top end of town. Now the GFC has seen half their advertising revenue wiped away since February, and if people don't sign up to support them, they are going to go under. Just AUD$12 a month will make you a passionate supporter. Click on the post heading if you aren't already familiar with this wonderful, volunteer-run institution.
