After over 20 years of broadcasting on 3MDR 97.1fm, Michael Holman has taken his Almost Blue program to an online format. Lovers of the blues need not despair as Michael, along with co-host Michelle, will be presenting the program through an online network which you can check out here www.almostblueradio.com/about-us/
Michelle Richardson has also moved her own show Pay It Forward to the online network and you can check out Michelle's program by following the link above.
We wish Michael & Michelle all the very best for their new broadcasting adventures.
Out On The Edge with Rollo has gone over the edge after 15 years of broadcasting on a Saturday night. Rollo has made the difficult decision to retire the program and will be missed by us all here at 3MDR. Lovers of great music can still enjoy classic and rare rock with the return of Roach and Purple Haze. Roach is thrilled to be back in the 3MDR studios after the retirement of Dazed & Confused which he co-hosted with his good mate Wayno a couple of years ago.
3MDR has received several new program proposals over recent months and the newly established Program Committee will be processing the applications over coming weeks. New presenters will undertake some training before being handed the keys to the studio to try their hand at community broadcasting. The new shows are predominantly music based and will make a great addition to the diversity of 3MDR's music programming. If you would like to find out more about how local community members can apply for a program, please contact Lee Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org
Other recent changes include:
Aka Pelican with Rick Ricksteen moving to Wednesdays 3-5pm.
Now & Then with Neesy and Mae has moved into Wednesdays 5-7pm
Whammer Jammer Cafe with Ol' Shep Dawg Hisself moved to Fridays 11am-1pm
The Imaginary Friends Show with Peej will be moving from Mondays to Tuesdays 6-9am in early June with a new Monday breakfast program hosted by The Invisible Man of Bring Down The Birds fame commencing at the same time.
We hope you can welcome the new volunteer presenters as they join the broadcasting team over coming weeks on your local radio station, 3MDR 97.1fm
