NCL logo8CCC is proud to be involved in National Contemporary Landscapes – a nation-wide collaborative community radio series exploring Australian Contemporary Classical Music.

8CCC has teamed with 3MBS Fine Music Melbourne and seven other community radio stations from every corner of Australia to create an exciting 10 part radio series with episodes focusing on the diverse contemporary classical music scenes across the country.
