International Jazz Day raises awareness in the international community of the virtues of jazz as a force for peace, unity, dialogue and enhanced cooperation among people, as well as an educational tool. Many governments, civil society organizations, educational institutions, and private citizens currently engaged in the promotion of jazz music embrace the opportunity to foster greater appreciation not only for the music but also for the contribution it can make to building more inclusive societies. This important international art form is celebrated for respecting for human rights and human dignity, eradicating discrimination, promoting freedom of expression and diversity, fostering gender equality, and reinforcing the role of youth for social change.

As the great Nina Simone said, “Jazz is not just music, it is a way of life, it is a way of being, a way of thinking”. The story of Jazz is written into the quest for human dignity, democracy and civil rights. It has given strength to the struggle against discrimination and racism.

The Launceston Jazz Club is celebrating International Jazz day with a host of special concerts on April 30 at The Boat House near Riverbend park. Stay tuned to City Park Radio for your chance to go to one of those shows as our guest.



Times are a changing … just like daylight saving … time now to re-adjust your PC or smart device to continue listening online.

Your management committee has decided to change stream providers.  Our new provider offers more capacity and more concurrent listeners at a more affordable price to us.

The best thing to do is to delete any current favourites, shortcuts, bookmarks, and cache for our online stream and then go back online to and re-install all that goodness you love.

Coming soon – a new community radio listener app … stay tuned to City Park Radio – we’ll tell you when it’s all fired up and ready to download. Just another way to source the happiness of your community station

Note: the old streaming service will operate for another month at the bottom of the online page on the website … but be warned, it WILL disappear.

3am becomes 2am as Tassie Daylight Saving ends ….

If you are still not sure, the clocks go back one hour


Once again in partnership with Friends of Theatre North, City Park Radio is bringing to the airwaves “Conversations With Friends” for 2022.

These conversations are insightful, fun and fascinating.  First up, it’s a chat with a stalwart of the Deloraine Dramatic Society – Patricia Woods.

From almost the first day of moving to Deloraine, Patricia has been at the heart of Society’s productions, most notably organizing the Deloraine Festivals of One Act Plays.

Listen to this Conversation with Friends on Monday 4th April – 4pm. It will be available shortly after as a podcast on the City Park Radio website.
