Hunter Rostrum

Sunday 6.00pm - 7.30pm

Ray Hugo presents a weekly program of mostly classical music, recorded at venues around the Hunter region.

Local Performance

2NURFM provides a forum for local artists to reach audiences not only in the Hunter, but right around Australia and the world.

Excellent Venues

As a faculty of The University of Newcastle, the Conservatorium fosters music teaching and performance. In its Concert Hall, regarded as one of the finest in the country, Newcastle audiences enjoy recitals by students, and eminent local and visiting artists.


Thanks to Ray and everyone involved with creating the music, the 1000th edition of the program went to air on 4 January, 2015.
