John Bacon - Goin' Down South
3MDR 97.1fm is committed to supporting Australian music. 50% of music played on air is Australian and much of it from local artists living in the Mountain District Area. 3MDR Live Sessions was born during 2011 in response to the vibrant live local music scene.

The Live Sessions project allows 3MDR programs to feature live music broadcast at a high quality. The project attracts funding and sponsors which cover costs including equipment purchases, sound engineering, training workshops and mentoring programs. The artists aired on 3MDR are from all ages, backgrounds, lifestyles, musical genres, geographical locations and range from full-time professional musicians to emerging artists and buskers.

During 2012 3MDR created recordings from 52 local musicians and bands to make a triple disc compilation CD called 'A Mountain of Sound 2012', featuring 52 exclusive recordings - a song for each week of the year! All income from CD sales will go directly back in to running live music at 3MDR. Artists featured on the record had to be living in the station's license area at the time the recording was made.
