It was a hot summer’s day when triple j first began broadcast on 19 January 1975 in Sydney, launching onto the airwaves, and straight into controversy by playing as its first track, the then-banned Skyhooks track ‘You Just Like Me ‘Cause I’m Good in Bed’. In the beginning the station was called 2JJ, and it broadcast on the AM band, which is a fossil yard now, and on 1 August 1980 the station moved to the FM band and renamed itself 2JJJ. In 1989, triple j began the first of its re-launch campaigns, a plan to expand into all the capital cities of Australia, including Newcastle in NSW, and in so doing became Australia’s only national youth broadcaster. From there, the station expanded yet again to 18 rural centres across Australia in January 1995, the first stage in a plan to reach a total of 46 regional centres of the country. Since the end of 1996, triple j has been a truly national network, broadcasting to places such as Broken Hill, Dubbo, Grafton, Taree, Wollongong, Cairns, Rockhampton, Ballarat, Bendigo, Alice Springs, Kalgoorlie, Wagga Wagga, Mildura, Warrnambool. The list goes on and on. Triple J Radio official website address is
