Phoenix FM presenter Dawn Delaney hit a high note in broadcasting last week when her show was voted best new program.  

World Music Safari – Sounds From Other Lands is a weekly two-hour radio program presented each Sunday from 11am.  

The award was announced by the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia at the Gold Coast Convention Centre. 

Ms Delaney plays an mix of music from the global melting pot of cultures which includes everything from cheesy French vintage pop to sounds from across the African continent.

You will also hear Gypsy music, Colombian Sami Music, Mexican mariarchi, devotional music from Pakistan and India, calypso worldwide, reggae and all its derivations and anything else that takes Ms Delaney’s fancy.

Phoenix FM president, Samual Harrison was at the Awards dinner and proudly accepted the award on behalf of Phoenix FM.

“While being relatively new to community radio, Dawn has a wealth of experience and knowledge behind her gained over many years’ travel as a photo-journalist abroad,” he said  

“This wealth of knowledge is evident in her program and was certainly recognised by the CBAA.” 

 Phoenix FM will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in January.

The station’s Anne Conway said Phoenix has certainly put itself on the map in that time.

“This is our third National Award plus we have had several finalist nominations over the years in what is a competitive, elite field,” she said.

“Behind every presenter there is a dedicated team which actually keeps Phoenix FM on air. 

“Our equipment is state of the art and we stream world wide.”
