As you may have gathered from this blog, I really love neighbourhoods as I feel they can provide a very needed sense of belonging for many of us. I also adore local music and feel fortunate that we have so many amazing local artists in our region. So of course when I heard about a neighbourhood digital radio station featuring local artists was starting up, I knew I had to get on board with that!
Midtown Radio is a local, volunteer-run, commercial-free digital radio station. Shows include Midtown Mixtape by the creators of Devil's Cut Podcast, the Midtown Pre-Game, Cing a Sept, Midtown Fam Jam and much more. I've been helping out with Midtown Conversations for Change, a show where we explore themes of social good, including community, reconciliation, and education.
I've really enjoyed listening to the station since its launch on June 14th. In addition to hearing some interesting discussions, it's been a place where I can consistently hear new-to-me local music like The Rhinos, and Alysha Brilla, as well as hear some of my long-time favourites like Richard Garvey and The Oldest Man I Know. If you haven't had a chance to listen yet, use this long weekend to tune in! You can also read more about Midtown Radio in this Community Edition article. #365ofgoodWR
