Update for Broadcast with Performing Arts Services in Coventry

We are happy that the broadcast went out even though unfortunately it was later than planned.

Parts of the interview are to be enhanced to bring out more of what was talked about during the discussion.

We are aiming for Monday so I can send a post when closer to that time.

This is a few steps further towards developing an on-line community radio station.

Also please leave any comments, criticisms or even compliments about what you thought.

First Community Interview Broadcast with Performing Arts Services in Coventry

Have a listen to this show broadcast at 12pm today!

There was some trouble with the microphone volume being too low but this is sorted out now.

We have also sorted out the uploading of the playlists!

If the ID3 tags are not included on the music - you can't broadcast!

Have a listen and enjoy!

Information for Bands - Edexcel Battle of the Bands 2011


There is another battle of the bands competition with a deadline for 23rd May.
The bands must be between 12 and 19 years of age, this is very important.

They have to submit music on youtube.

So this is for the 23rd May.

The web page is attached at the bottom of the post.

To summarise, there are 2 very urgent deadlines - 15th May (2 weeks time) and 
23rd May (3 weeks time, but 12 to 19years only).

Please forward onto other bands as soon as possible.


Information for Bands - 2 Weeks 2 Make It


I hope all is well.

I have an urgent message for any bands who are serious about their music.  It is 
urgent as the deadline to submit music is very close - 15th May.

Preferably before the 15th May a team from Birmingham are working with a team in 
Coventry and are holding an event called 2 weeks 2 make it.

Basically, bands and the film crews have 2 weeks to make a video to present in a 
competition and the best video team (band plus film crew) win a prize!

It is not expensive - just £50 to make a professional video, as costs are usually more.

I spoke to Carl the main co-ordinator and the requirements are that  - 1) the bands must be serious about adding this event to their music portfolio, 2) have performed live gigs and 3. have professionally recorded tracks.

So this is for 15th May 2011 (2 weeks from today).

The web link is attached below at the bottom of the post.

Have a look and let me know if interested.
