Hello and welcome to another ‘Behind SouthWaves’ blog. I am sorry that it has been so long, but I have been busy working on a number of projects. I have been attempting to restructure the way SouthWaves Audio works, because I have encountered a lot of confusion when approaching people.
SouthWaves Audio is a brand, of which there are several offshoots and projects. Here is a brief summary of each activity, and what we hope to achieve with them.
Weekly podcast focusing on theatre and performing arts in West Sussex. It is hoped that we will gain partnerships with local theatres, and build a trust in the arts community. The podcast is currently being rested for the time being.
Originally a response to the success of our live broadcasts at Chichester City FC, it is currently a work in progress. We hope to start a podcast dedicated to sport in West Sussex.
A weekly radio show that is currently only distributed to . Each week’s hour long show, I play a selection of Boogie Rock, Rock n Roll, Rockabilly and Blues. Along with the popular names in said genres, I also seek out unsigned and independent acts to play on the show. It is hoped that I will find ONE station in the United Kingdom to present the show on.
Soon to be a daily podcast, but started life as a blog and participation Facebook page. To date, the page has gained over 2500 likes and growing.
A weekly radio show playing the best in pop music from the 90s, 00s & today! It is currently aired on a couple of radio stations in the UK, and one in the US.
A dream project for me, a local talk station for West Sussex; planned and executed in the American talk radio mould. I am currently just building contacts for this project.
A local podcast for Bognor Regis, featuring event promotion, interviews and more!
A podcast released each weekday, where I discuss a wide range of subjects for a short duration. Originally based on the SouthWaves Radio show of the same name.
I hope to get somewhere with most of these projects, only time will tell.
NEW PODCASTS RELEASED THIS WEEK:
The Bognor Regis Community Podcast
Conclusion: So what’s happening in the week ahead? I am writing and producing more episodes of our audio drama series, ‘The Hudsons’, which is due to return in January. I am also recording interviews for all podcast projects, which is always an interesting experience. Other than that, I will see what the next week holds!
Until next time, thanks for reading!
