#ACRAs2015 awards time fast approaching... hear the winners' audio here @radioinfo

Saturday 10 October, 2015
As usual in 2015, radioinfo will bring you the winners' speeches from the ACRAs.

Winners do not get a chance to make a speech when they accept their awards (a very wise decision for a room full of radio broadcasters).

But you can get to hear who they want to thank and what they want to say in their winners speeches thanks to radioinfo's team behind the scenes, who will record them immediately after they have accepted their awards.

'The night John Cleese (almost) cracked onto me... well, he was thinking about it anyway'

I have been to two ACRA’s. My first I was loving myself sick as I had been nominated for and went on to win the Brian White Award for excellence in journalism. The company wouldn’t pay for me to go, so a kind Account Manager convinced CUB to cover my fare to Adelaide with one night’s accommodation.

Last year, as we were covering the ACRAs, up popped a hashtag called #acraawardsthatshouldexist, with a funny take on the annual radio awards.

In the lead up to this year's awards, the hashtag is active again, with 'alternative' suggestions for award categories, such as 'taking a caller that goes to air over a song, leav ing the fader down by accident and best timed toilet break,' being posted this week.
