2019 Music Victoria Awards

WOW! Winners are grinners! So who grabbed the most awards at the 2019 Music Victoria Awards? It was The Teskey Brothers all over the shop winning four awards.

It was so great to see the hard working Vika and Linda Bull being inducted into the Hall Of Fame, along with the community radio station celebrating it's 40th year, PBS 106.7FM Melbourne.
