DIGITAL RADIO ‘BANDWAGON’
A new weekly radio show with HIVE community radio focusing on the emerging and local talent we have around the region. HIVE radio new home will be in the soon to be opened St Hildas in South Shields which will be the new performing arts and cultural centre. I was introduced to St Hilda's by Richard Barber, who is the event manager for South tyneside council. South tyneside are, as you can see more willing to help develop music at its grass roots. St Hilda's is actually a performing venue with a radio station that's the new jewel in the South tyneside crown. Our radio show is committed to interview the best new artists Tyne and Wear boasts right now.
Having launched June 2018, our first show saw us hook up with the mighty Holly Rees where we chatted about the release of her new single and her performance at Evolution Emerging 2018. Holly has already had airplay on BBC 6 Music, via Tom Robinson's show, thanks to the handy work of her latest single Toast. On the show, Holly and Steve discussed her new track along with three live recordings ahead of her forthcoming tour coming with Matt Dunbar.
