About the Show
Armed with reliable headphones to process new music arriving from all over the globe, he exploits an exhaustive listening habit by planning and producing each edition of the New Releases Show, selecting the week's cuts with input from various contributors. Talk is not cheap on the program as each song heard is explored in considered and well-researched depth, presented via a fully scripted review.
Perhaps most importantly, the program works to promote the music that finds its home in the Australian community radio sector: independent, often self-produced and at times quite underground music that is markedly different to any nostalgic or bubblegum commercial radio fare. Hosted by Cobcroft himself, who writes and reads at least a review or two per episode, each show congregates the opinions of many other contributors from community radio station 4ZZZ and other stations around Australia.
