A series of conversations with some of Australia’s most successful musicians in which host Amber Petty explores the mystery of how her guests have transcended beyond their simple love of music to realising a musical dream come true, often beyond their wildest, rock ’n’ roll dreams.
At the heart of each episode are the relationships these musicians have with one particular instrument. We explore why these great love affairs have been so ‘instrumental’ to them personally and professionally.
Coming up in this series we chat to - Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus), Simon Mavin (Hiatus Kaiyote), Rob Hirst (Midnight Oil), Harry Angus James (The Cat Empire), Peter Luscombe (Paul Kelly band), Cash Savage (Cash Savage & The Last Drinks), Pat Davern (Grinspoon) and Sarah Blasko.
Instrumental is created and hosted by Amber Petty – sponsored by Yamaha Music Australia.

THE SILENT GENERATION PODCAST
In this series we want to find out what makes them tick? What they have come to know about life. And what do they make of the world now? In November 1951 Time Magazine published an article by an unknown essayist, reflecting on its young adults (the millennials of the time), saying “It does not issue manifestoes, make speeches or carry posters. It has been called ‘The Silent Generation.’ But why the silence? What, if anything, does it hide? The Silent Generation are those born between 1925 and 1942. Now, in their late 70s, 80s and 90s, this generation seems to be the generation least spoken of. Not often enough spoken to. While marketers and advertisers seem perpetually obsessed with tracking and predicting every move the millennials make, The Silent Generation sit quietly. They possess wisdom spanning across more decades of change in the world than any other generation in history has witnessed. In this series we want to find out what makes them tick. What they have come to know about life. And what do they make of the world now. The Silent Generation is sponsored by Freedom Aged Care. Series created and hosted by Amber Petty.
THE WISE GUIDES PODCAST
The Wise Guides is a series created in-conjunction with Nova Entertainment. Andy Milne, then Head of Creative Services at Nova Entertainment approached us as they were planning their podcast offering as part of their national radio network. The Wise Guides became their first 'all-female' offering. It was chosen by Apple Inc. as a 'FEATURE' show for the month of its launch. The concept of the show is the celebration of the wisdom of women you may never have heard of before (but should, because they're fascinating & fabulous). ACAST podcast platform listed The Wise Guides under 'Going Downunder - The Best from Australia'. The show was also written about in Media Week, Adnews and other industry publications. Season one and two of The Wise Guides continues to be listened to from all pockets of the globe: from Nepal, Egpyt, Iceland, the US and of course Australia. #podcast #TheWiseGuidespodcast #amberpetty #wisdom #wisewomen
