Local Music News – June 2013

Here’s my latest column for the Hastings Observer, which was printed in their June 7th edition.

“This months column is going to have a distinct radio theme I’m afraid as that’s what I’ve been doing with myself for much of the month of May. Hastings Rock radio may now be gone from your radio dials once again, but if original local music is your thing you can still hear the four dedicated Local Music Shows that I presented for the station. You can find them all at: http://www.mixcloud.com/HastingsRock/

I had some great feedback about these shows, so I hope that you’ll enjoy them too. You’ll find a great variety of local musical talent within the shows & much that you may not have heard before & hopefully something to make you want to search out any local gigs by the acts. Enjoy.

In other local radio news, Carnival FM will be back on the air for Hastings Old Town Carnival Week (1st to 11th August) and I will presenting a Local Music Show for the station on weekdays between 6 & 8pm. These shows will be featuring live studio sessions from original local acts, as they proved very popular last year. Find out more at: http://www.carnivalfm.co.uk/

One other piece of good news is that the annual RNLI Beach Concerts will thankfully be taking place this year, after some financial concerns. They will be on Saturday & Sunday, 3rd & 4th August.  Let’s hope that summer has finally arrived by then.

Andy Gunton,

Pierless Music & Hastings Rock”
