Local man James Irvine is making every effort to promote local performers through his involvement with community radio station 2LVR. James volunteers for the station as a radio host and is working hard to develop a new segment – “Unchartered”.
Unchartered is a segment designed to showcase music from unknown artists, promoting and encouraging local talent. At first the response to the new segment was limited, but after further advertising campaigns the program is gaining momentum. James’ playlist is increasing with very positive results. James uses the air time as a vehicle to
promote local and Central West artists. He invites them into the studio to perform their music live and chat with the host. This medium is such a great way for the musicians to connect with their audience in a personal way.
Although live performances and interviews are preferred, there is the opportunity to make alternate arrangements. Musicians can simply forward a copy of their original pieces of music and conduct interviews via the phone.
James already has a number of local artists on the playlist, including Chelsea Turner, Maddi Collits and popular local band House of Tribes, but he is constantly on the lookout for more. James is hoping to increase the variety of music he is able to play and cater to the tastes of a broader audience.
If you are interested or know of any local talents who would benefit from this type of exposure, want more information or would like to arrange a meeting, please contact 2LVR on 6852 4288 or call James Irvine on
0400 054 381. Unchartered airs on 2LVR between 8pm and 11pm on Wednesdays. Tune in to hear
the freshest local talent and support artists in the Central West.
