Members of 2RRR recently attended an enlightening community event held at our valued sponsor, The Bayview Hotel. Hosted by Live Music Consultant John Wardle and the City of Ryde, the session allowed local musicians and performers to have their say on how to 'Grow Live Music in the City of Ryde'. There were a lot of thought-provoking ideas circulating among the attendees, with the discussion focussing on ways to build a supportive working relationship between musicians, venues and promoters. If you have any ideas you would like to share on the topic of building live music in Ryde-Hunters Hill, please feel free to comment or email [email protected].
Your Local Sound [to the World] was out and about at this year's Moocooboola Festival at Boronia Park. It was a fun-filled day, and thanks to the looming rain clouds holding back their downpour, the festival grounds remained dry. 2RRR would like to thank Mayor Zac Miles and the Hunters Hill Council for their guiding support on the day and all the broadcasters/interviewees/volunteers for their tireless efforts and entertainment.

Last Saturday 2RRR in conjunction with the Community Media Training Organisation (CMTO) held an Audio Editing Course for our broadcasters. With the rising trend in podcasting and pre-recorded programming, audio editing has become a necessary skill in radio broadcasting. In addition to an excellent and informative session provided by CMTO trainer Heli, it was a valuable opportunity for 2RRR broadcasters to mingle and get to know one another outside of their respective programs. For more information on Community Media Training please visit the CMTO website cmto.org.au Click in to see some more pics of the day!
2RRR members and friends mourn the recent passing of our colleague and friend, Bruce Flarrety. With over 26 years on air with Tuesday Midday Jazz and prolific volunteer at the station ... Bruce distinguished himself with our financial accounting, Community Broadcasting grants and highly reputed radio training course. Bruce sadly was diagnosed in recent years with prostate cancer and fought very well until he succumbed to this dreaded disease at the age of 90. One of Bruce’s proudest moments was being inducted as Life Member at 2RRR several years ago. His wisdom was well sought by presenters, executives and directors through the years. 2RRR farewells our beloved Bruce Flarrety.
