Community radio has been a big part of the radio landscape since its first licences were granted in the 1970s. The general philosophy of community radio is to provide an alternative to the two other models of broadcasting: commercial and public radio.

This clip was part of Melbourne community radio station Triple R's 30th anniversary special and was presented by one of their announcers at the time, Chris Hatzis.

He introduces an interview with former Whitlam government minister Dr Moss Cass, who speaks about his involvement in approving the first community radio licences. Dr Cass speaks eloquently and in great detail about his involvement with the licensing process, which included an educational licence for 3RMT at RMIT University, the station which eventually changed its name to Triple R.
