Amrap has a new website to better support Aussie talent

Wednesday 06 May, 2020

The CBAA has unveiled the new Amrap website giving broadcasters and artists easier navigation, searching and functionality and more importantly, greater connectivity.

The Australian Music Radio Airplay Project is a CBAA initiative made possible with the assistance of the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications via the Community Broadcasting Foundation.

Showing its popularity, on its frst day of launch, some of our readers have reported the site is loading slowly due to the high number of visits.
 
Amrap Manager, Andrew Khedoori, says the need for the new site became obvious in the last couple of years, and following consultation with Australian musicians, community radio managers and artist representatives with UX designers the site has been revamped.
 
Andrew says, “Back in 2018, the CBAA identified the need to upgrade the AirIt website that both community broadcasters and Australian musicians have been using for the past decade. Like all websites that have been around a while, the AirIt site started to deteriorate, but also wasn't meeting contemporary needs.

“Support for Australian music is what we do, and now we can do it a whole lot better.”
 
The new site has profile pages for both musicians and broadcasters so artists can now find broadcasters who show an interest in the type of music they produce and even possibly make contact.
 
Similarly, broadcasters can find artists through their profile pages, filter their searching for the music they want to discover by genre, identity and location and get in touch and see if that artist might like to do an interview or some other on-air opportunity on their program.
 
In a much bigger change, artists can now upload their new releases in full where previously only three tracks were allowed.
