“Living In The Land Of Oz” is an all-Australian music, news and interviews show airing 2-5pm on Mondays. Host Leigh “Lee-Roy” Stancliffe presents a broad mix of Australian pop and rock music from the 50’s to today, with the occasional song by a Kiwi act slipped in. There’s also one or two interviews every week, from major artists to up-and-coming independent acts, and occasionally with music journalists, authors, TV presenters, comedians and other people in the Australian entertainment industry.
The final hour of the show is 100% new releases with no song more than 3 months old
Lee-Roy has been a member of 979fm since June 2000. He presented Australian independent music program “Support Your Local Rock-Gods” from 2001 to 2004. After feeling restricted only playing unsigned acts the show evolved into “Living In The Land Of Oz”. The show is named after Ross Wilson’s first solo single, a song about Aboriginal rights. Lee-Roy chose this as the show’s name as it includes acts that were born in Australia, people that were born overseas but now call Australia home, as well as the people whose ancestors have been here for thousands of years
