Biography/History

"Beginning in 1993, Deadly Sounds was an important milestone for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, as it gave the Indigenous community a positive voice in Australian media. Over its 21 years of broadcast, Deadly Sounds featured interviews with some of Australia’s most prominent icons, including Adam Goodes, Nicky Winmar, Uncle Archie Roach, Cathy Freeman, Dan Sultan, Samantha Harris, Patrick Mills, Johnathan Thurston, Christine Anu and the late Dr Yunupingu and Uncle Jimmy Little just to name a few. Not only did Deadly Sounds feature established Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, it helped uncover new talent by giving them the opportunity to have their music heard – building their confidence and reinforcing their musical capacity as a result of being a national radio program ... In June 2014, Vibe Australia was informed that funds for the Vibe Project will be directed to the Australian Government’s programs that deliver front line services from 1 July 2014. This includes Deadly Sounds. Vibe Australia will no longer be producing Deadly Sounds, at this stage.--Deadly Vibe website, viewed 7 October, 2016, http://www.deadlyvibe.com.au/about/our-work/deadly-sounds/
