When it comes to drama, no radio station in Australia can match Griffith-based community broadcaster 2MIA.

Just look at their Annual General Meetings

Now, the popular station will be giving us some innovative and high quality drama on its airwaves.  

Starting this week, the podcast Radio Dramatica will feature every Tuesday night between 9pm and 10pm.

The new show will be a mix of short stories and serial drama brought to us by some of the best producers of radio drama in the world.

The program will be hosted by 2MIA FM personalities, D-Jazz, AKA Scott Williams, and Josef Murwood.

“We will be hosting stories from the US and UK to begin, with the intention of including our own in-house produced work with the help of thespian types from the community in the future,” Mr Williams said. 

“Prepare to be thrilled, enthralled and tickled with laughter”. 

D-Jazz also presents Fusion City every Sunday between 7:30pm and 10pm, the Morning Music Marathon every Monday between 9am and 1pm.

Josef Murwood, recently elected to the 2MIA executive, will be making his presenting debut. 

Story telling and serial drama on radio – popular in the 1950s and 1960s – have experience on renaissance in recent years. 

Serial, an investigative journalism podcast narrating a nonfiction story over multiple episodes launched in 2015, ranked number one on iTunes for months.

2MIA would also like listeners to know funeral notices and memorial announcements will now be broadcast at 9.05am and 12.05pm Monday to Friday, and 10.05am and 12.05pm on Sundays. 

Other times can be arranged by families with their funeral directors. 

If you’d like to air a memorial announcement for a loved one, email radio@2miafm.org.au with “memorial announcement” in the subject line.
