Musica Giovane launched in January 1980, broadcasting Italian music on community radio in Sydney, Australia (2SER-FM, 2NSB-FM and 2RDJ-FM). For over a decade it was the only music-based Italian radio program, introducing hundreds of new artists and bands to its Italo-Australian listeners – from Claudio Baglioni, Renato Zero, i Pooh and Lucio Dalla to Eros Ramazzotti, Giorgia, Nek and Laura Pausini. It also actively promoted local talent and local music festivals. For many years, it was the only radio program in Australia to “live” broadcast the annual Sanremo Italian Song Festival. The program was subsequently broadcast every weekend from 1994 to 2016 on the national Italian AM/FM radio network, Rete Italia. Throughout the 80’s, Musica Giovane also hosted M.G. Dance Nights, a Friday night disco, bringing together young Italo-Australians.
