Our Sounds

Presented by:

4:00pm - 6:00pm

94.9MAINfm love local music and want to play more of it. “Our Sounds” is a program dedicated to the music of our radio listening area. This is a fairly large area reaching out from Castlemaine taking in a great deal of Central Victoria.
The idea came from the early days of “Fast Forward” with Pete Dawson and the late John French. Pete was keen to feature a local artist each week, present them and their music along with comments from John on the recording side along with discussions from the FF Team and the guest. As often happens good ideas get put on the back burner and sadly it never happened.
Since Fast Forwarded ended I have missed presenting music but was not keen to revisit those amazing days simply because that was then and this is now. I learnt a great deal from Pete and John along with our guests and other presenters and of course the music. After a time the desire to play music on air kept nagging at me. Once I decided I would like to go back on air with an all music show I decided to pitch the idea of an all local music show. The idea was welcomed by all and the excitement quickly grew.
The plan is play music from local artists of all genres and styles with feature albums hi lighting a specific band or soloist, duet, orchestra, choir, etc. There will be a challenge in blending genres and themes but it should be fun. The main aim is to ensure the amazing music of this area is heard on air, this will mean our local artists will heard all over throughout our area and anywhere on the planet on line. I am rather new to this concept and the local music scene, in essence it will be an odyssey through time and music as I am keen to explore the past and the present. The list of names of artists from this area and its surrounds is extraordinary. With the help of Colin Lemon Presenter(Live and Local) Pete Dawson/Music Director and presenter InDig’n’Us AustralAsia along with others at mainfm and our listeners including some very enthusiastic and dedicated locals I am building a fascinating library of CD’s and music on line/facebook and youtube etc. “Our Sounds” will give me and Your community radio station the opportunity to look into the past, explore the present to discover the future.
“Our Sounds” are the Sounds of Our Community!
