774 ABC Melbourne is on the move! The entire station is packing up its Southbank headquarters and will take up residence at the State Library this week from Friday 26 to Monday 29 February.

774’s Radio-in-Residence will be a live audio and visual affair giving the public a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into everything that makes a radio station tick.

Nine programs will be broadcast across four days in the Library’s Experimedia room, including the first public outing of the all-new ‘Friday revue live and slightly dangerous’ hosted by Richelle Hunt and Brian Nankervis, with live performances from local bands. Please note bookings are required for the Friday revue. Everyone is welcome to drop into all other programs throughout the four day broadcast during Library opening hours.

Other highlights include Raf Epstein’s Changing Tracks segment, and Libbi Gorr’s bright and shiny Sunday morning program with special Library guests talking about everything from conservation to comic books.

Drop into our #774inRes studio from 10am on Friday 26 February, all programs are live and everyone is welcome!
