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].

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.
