Adelaide Music Wiki

play / pause / play is an internet radio station and audio services company that exists to support the South Australian live music scene. It features 100% Australian music with a big focus on new releases, artists based in Adelaide and artists performing here soon - whether they're playing at the Grace Emily, Thebarton Theatre or WOMADelaide.


The play / pause / play radio stream focuses on new music from local artists and touring Aussie artists playing in Adelaide soon. Instead of hosts, listeners hear the voices of the artists themselves introducing the music played, along with gig guides for some of Adelaide’s favourite venues. It is run by Luke Penman who was previously a volunteer and staff member at Radio Adelaide where he worked in the music team and hosted the local music program, Local Noise. He interviewed hundreds of local artists on the weekly show before moving the program to the morning slot, where he produced and presented the three-hour show five days a week for 12 months.
