Brad Cox has become the second Aussie artist to have his own global Apple Music radio show. 

Dubbed Happy Hour Down Under With Brad Cox, the show officially launched on Friday and features the artists and songs "that inspire and excite him" each week.

"I'm so pumped to have a radio show on Apple Music Country," said Cox ahead of the show's launch. 

"It’s so different from touring, writing and recording but to be able to connect with music fans all over the world right now is a gift. I’m chuffed to have been asked to do it and being one of two Aussies with a show on a global Apple Music radio station is bloody awesome."

The Music caught up with Cox to find out more about Happy Hour Down Under With Brad Cox and what listeners can expect. Check it out below. 

  • Can you tell us a little about how the radio show came up? 

When we were approached by Apple Music to do the show, my initial reaction was to start listening to a few radio shows and was surprised to find so many. I instantly loved hearing some of my favourite artists host their shows. I was in for sure.

  • How does hosting the show differ from performing on stage? 

Well there is no travel so that’s mad. I can record it from home. It’s nice to be able to connect and work in our industry on a new platform. It’s also different cause if I fuck up I just do another take, that’s not possible when playing a show. 

  • Was there a particular segment that you knew you wanted to introduce? 

We have a segment called 'Farmers Delight' where I get to choose a couple of songs that are mostly traditional country and tribute the place where country music was born. 

  • And what was your ‘absolute must include’ song for your first show? 

On the first show I played the song Cheers by ERNEST. This show is all about a good time and I think this song encapsulates that perfectly. 

  • What do you think people will take away from the Happy Hour Down Under radio show? 

Hopefully the show will become a place where people can knock off work, crack a few tins with their mates and see off another week.

  • What else do you have planned for 2021?

The ultimate goal for this year is to get the homies back on the road and start doing what we do best - putting on a kick-arse country show.
