    Presented by Team Lofty

    Life's too short to listen to bad music. Enjoy our selection of mainly alternative and indie tunes from the 1980s through to today, with a few curve balls thrown in for good measure. Contains minimum 50% Australian content.

  • Lake Air
    Friday, 22 June 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
    Presented by Jake Longwell

    From the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York comes Lake Air. The program derives its name from that of an FM radio station in the area whose official call letters were WLKA. In the late 80s and early 90s, Lake Air offered its listeners a unique mix of Contemporary Jazz, New Age, and Acoustic music. Jake absolutely loved this station back then, and he does my best to recreate that sound for a new generation. Each week, Jake features classic tracks from artists and albums that defined these genres, along with contemporary instrumentalists and singer/songwriters. Take an hour out of your busy schedule to enjoy this unique music mix. It's the sound of Lake Air.
