Connections Matters Radio with Charles Pakana is launching on Kool N Deadly

Connection Matters Radio (CMR) is launching nearly nine months earlier than planned and premiering on Victoria’s first and only Aboriginal-owned and -operated radio station, 3KND 1503AM. 😀 The episodes of CMR will air on 3KND between 7:00pm and 10:00pm on Mondays. It will also be carried on various podcasting channels (3KND website number one) soon after going to air. “A great fit” 3KND General Manager Gerry “Gman” Lyons said: “Charles first went to air with his current affairs show Connection Matters on 3KND in 2017, so it’s a great that the show’s successor goes to air on this station.”

The decision to fast-track the launch of the program was influenced directly by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and subsequent lockdowns introduced by the Victorian and Federal governments. “Keeping our mob informed and entertained is, – after the safety of our people – our prime focus,” Gman stated. “With Charles’ interviewing and broadcasting style, there’s no doubt that the show will be a great support for Victorian Aboriginal and broader communities during these hard times.”
