Listener feedback : “I’ve been listening to the Indonesian and Multicultural shows for about 25 years ..it’s so important for cultural diversity, the traditional music and gamelan is very calming and beautiful and we have a big community of Indonesians … Big Thanks to Judy Shelley ! “ Rose Rath Byron Bay. 

Listener Feedback: Hi Judy, Lovely to talk with you today,  it brought back memories of my early days in the Byron Shire… Sunday afternoons in the hills of Wilson Creek, Suara Indonesia on the radio.. gamelan drifting down the valley. So happy to have found my place in the country. Thanks Louise.
