BTS 2023

Ready for a rocking role

Australian Truck Radio will broadcast live from the Brisbane Truck Show 2023 from May 18 to 21 with plenty of music, interviews and giveaways too.

“We listen to you, because you listen to us”.

That simple motto is the beat that drives the decision making at Australian Truck Radio, a new digital radio station designed specifically with Australia’s truckies in mind.

This month, Australian Truck Radio will be on tour, setting up shop on the mezzanine level in Merchandise Alley at the Brisbane Truck Show 2023.

The station’s founder and music director Simon Smith (left) says the Australian Truck Radio stand will be the place to be for great music, interviews, merchandise giveaways, and competitions, including a daily prize draw supported by telematics experts – WHG Technologies.

He says the whole team is looking forward to the opportunity of meeting show goers in person and being part of the biggest event on the trucking calendar this year.

Every day the word is spreading about Australian Truck Radio and the benefits of its digital app that enables truckies to simply lock on to the music that they love and have it follow them as the drive through country towns and across state borders, without having to reach for the tuning dial.

Scheduling with his audience in mind, Smith says the station’s playlist is wide, eclectic and constantly evolving to meet the requests of its audience and limit repetition as much as possible.

He says with drivers locked on for hours on end as they traversed the long highways of Australia the station aims to become part of the journey – another voice around a virtual campfire where truckies across the land share the same experience at the same time.

Smith says the Australian Truck Radio Studio Hotline (0401 912 255) has been a popular addition this year with more and more truckies texting in to share their anniversaries, news, shout outs, birthdays and song requests.

The Australian Truck Radio app, in both android and Apple format, is available to download at and the station is also on Facebook.

With just days to go until this year’s Brisbane Truck Show, Smith is encouraging listeners to save up their song requests and drop by to hear them played live on air. 

“Be sure to drop by anytime to grab some Australian Truck Radio merchandise and meet the team behind Australia’s 24/7 national radio station for truckies,” he says. 

“I look forward to seeing you there. If you haven’t already, make sure you download our free app to listen live, all day, every day, across Australia.”
