Robbie Thorpe interviews Archie Roach at the 3CR radio studio in Melbourne.The station was one of the first to play Archie's music in the late 1980s.

Archie talks about his musical influences from the Scottish music his foster father loved to Mahalia Jackson, The Ink Spots, Nat King Cole, Sam Cooke and country music.

This clip documents Archie's radio interview. It's more of a fly-on-the-wall recording than a fully produced piece of footage. The camera operator does well to squeeze into the studio and capture the conversation.
