I’m pleased to say Darren’s Music Blog is going to be linking up with Greater Manchester Rock Radio. They will be running some of my rock album reviews on their website and I’ll be running occasional band interviews from them here. You can listen in and find out more about the station here. With a wide range of specialist shows – from prog to punk, classic rock, metal and indie check their schedule and give them a listen.
Station Manager, Tony Charles, is also on the look-out for new presenters:
Are you an aspiring Radio DJ? Do you fancy broadcasting on a real web-based Rock Community Radio Station?
If so, then Greater Manchester Rock Radio (GMRR) would like to hear from you.
Founded in November 2018, GMRR is the only web-based community radio station based on rock music in the North West, and potentially in the whole of the UK.
They are on the hunt for volunteers who want to present their own weekly one to two-hour shows or help with interviews /research . For presenting all you need is a love of rock music, a great idea for a show, a PC mic and editing software.
Full training will be provided, and you can pre-record your show from home. Plus, there is the added perk of free entry to a few rock gigs and the chance to interview some amazing bands. (when they are back)
Station manager Tony Charles has been a DJ since the 1980s on local internet radio stations, as well as having experience on stations such as BBC Radio 1, 4 and 5 as a researcher.
He said: “We are getting more and more people tuning into GMRR and as a result we are looking for more presenters to help expand our offerings.
“Our youngest presenter is 20 and our oldest is 72. We’re happy to hear from anyone who’s interested.
“We are also looking for a community and/or a charity to take on a 1-hour slot each week to promote community issues.”
Applicants of any age or background are welcome.
