ABC Classic FM is a classical music radio station available in Australia, and internationally online. It is operated by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). It was established in 1976 as “ABC-FM”, and later for a short time was known as “ABC Fine Music” (a play on the letters FM), before adopting its current name. It was the ABC’s first experiment in FM broadcasting – which had become a necessity in Australia as broadcasters ran out of AM frequencies on which to transmit. ABC Classic FM, inspired partly by the example of BBC Radio 3, broadcasts classical music, operas, recitals, live concerts, and music analysis programs. ABC Classic FM is the broadcaster for the Sydney International Piano Competition.
