In the fall of 2008, the Aboriginal Music Countdown went national with the advent of a new Aboriginal broadcast association called the “Western Association of Aboriginal Broadcasters (WAAB).” The association united five provincial Aboriginal broadcasters to work together on common goals and interests. All five broadcast societies signed on to broadcast the National Aboriginal Top Thirty program.
In March of 2010 the name of the program was changed to “The National Aboriginal Music Countdown”. The format also rose to feature forty songs from across North America and also included some Indigenous music from New Zealand and Australia.
Most recently NAMC has been relaunched as the Indigenous Music Countdown. The Indigenous Music Countdown is hosted by Frannie Klien, who spotlights today’s best new Indigenous music and shares interviews from artists who range from several genres including; hip-hop, rock, country, alternative, rock, folk and pop/dance.
