Life FM presenter Marty Wells is looking forward to the Australia Day programming at the station.

THERE is only one way to celebrate Australia Day for community-based Christian radio 103 Life FM, and that is by jamming the airwaves with local music, non-stop for 24 hours.

"We are planning an all-day music marathon because that is the best way to reflect how rich and diverse the Australian music landscape is, and has been for decades," Marty Wells, Life FM announcer, said.

All regular programming will be in place but the announcers will only be playing Australian music.

"The country music program will only play Australian country, and my dance program will be Australian-only dance tracks," Mr Wells said.

The station's manager will be hosting a special one-hour slot of Australian metal, and unreleased music from Clarence Valley-based bands will also get an airing.

Announcers are not confined to any particular period of Australian music but considering the average age of the announcers there is likely to be a lot of music from the 1980s and 1990s, he said.

The station's feedback phone line will also be open for the day so they can interact with listeners.

"Listeners can put our announc- ers to the test," Mr Wells said.
