Most of the ARIA Nominess we can hear on Triple J and Double J as their Not Mainstream Artists.

Why are you stating the obvious? :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Of Course, Why?

Because we all know they’re played on Triple J or Double J. Here’s a tip. The CHR stations don’t play a lot of Aussie music and therefore don’t play many ARIA award nominees. :stuck_out_tongue:

Actually a lot of the nominees are played on commercial radio, its only a few like the country and heavy metal singers that aren’t played.
