On Wednesday 22nd June, thirteen year 11 students visited NOOSA Fm for a taste of a real live working radio station. They arrived at 9:30 am and were given a station tour by Jimi Mc and John Schluter.
Next up it was in at the deep end with Len Tyler for an interview live on air. Len worked his inimitable magic creating a relaxed ambience for the students to individually express their views and the general concensus was that it was a fabulous introduction to live radio! He even managed to persuade a very reluctant Monique to join in the fun.
Afterwards it was open forum with John Schluter who gave generously of his time answering informal questions and sharing his immense experience in the world of TV and Radio.
And with a quick look at the practice studio and a teaser session with Jimi Mc the students managed to cover quite a lot in a relatively short visit.
Special thanks to Vice Principal Mr Stock and Film, TV, New media and English teacher Miss Lillingstone.
Good Shepherd Lutheran College will be our first School of the Month… more details to follow.
The Time Warp Festival on Saturday, May 7th, attracted around 6,000 people! We would like to thank our sponsor Rick’s Diner and Rick and Ben for inviting NOOSA FM to share in such a great weekend event.
Mother's Day was also a busy day for the diner, but with fewer classic cars and bikes than usual for a Sunday... maybe they were all tired out after Time Warping!
After our 'studio' was set up in Rick's Beer Garden Pete's Rock Box had kids, mums and dads boppin' away. It was terrific fun. Having sampled a taste of Rick's famous burgers (small size!) we carried on until 6pm with Myra and Vick taking a turn playing some drive time music. Thanks to Iain for setting up, Rob Baillie for holding the fort in the studio, and to Chris Lofven who dropped by to gossip!
Saturday May 7th Therase Burke and Chris Löfvén will be hosting a live broadcast from our big red tent. Be sure to drop by, say hello, share your favourite Fusion story with our listeners or simply chat with Therase and Chris throughout the day. The annual Cooroy Fusion Festival is a celebration of local artists, entertainers, artisans, food, community groups and much more. The fun begins at 9AM and continues to 2PM. For details visit the Cooroy Fusion website at:
Noosa 101.3 fm will be present at 2 days of outside events at our Sponsor Rick's Dinner this coming weekend: 7 - 8 May, 2016.
Saturday we take part in the Time Warp Festival with a static tent/display and lots of chat to the thousands of spectators anticipated. Margaret Street will be closed to traffic from midday for this great charity event with over 150 hot-rods and 200 custom bikes on display.
Live bands playing through to 10pm; Pin-up Parade; old movies running all day; stalls reflecting the Time Warp and Rockabilly theme? and - as they say - lots more !!!
Festival 1pm - 10pm: Margaret street closed from midday to 7pm.
On Sunday Pete Remick is broadcasting the Rock Box Live program from Rick's balcony overlooking the beer garden from 1pm to 4pm.
Following on - Myra is presenting a Sunday Drive program from 4pm to 5pm, and rounding out the day with Vick at Drive Time can be heard from 5pm - 6pm.
Jimi Mc will not be on air this Sunday to accommodate this outside broadcast - thanks Jim!
We realize Saturday's event co-insides with the Cooroy Fusion Festival, but hope that many of our fellow presenters, members and listeners will come over to Palmwoods to fly the flag and join in the fun of the occasion.
So why not head over to Palmwoods Time Warp Festival and pop in to say hello to us at the Noosa 101.3 fm tent.
On Wednesady 20th April, Mark Schafferius, Adam Lund, Josiah Bradshaw and Rodney Solomon got a taste of a real working Radio station when they visited Noosa 101.3 fm for a behind the scenes tour and live interview with our very own Len Tyler. The lads, with their support team led by the amazing Hazel Starr from Interact Australia, learnt about the history of the station and even had a go at working the desk in Studio 2! A lot of fun was had by all and there were huge smiles all round! Thanks for the visit and all the best!
Booin Gari festival celebrates Indigenous culture on the Sunshine Coast
Booin Gari was held on Tuesday, 5 April at Noosaville Lions Park, with a range of activities on land and water for the whole community to enjoy.
Booin Gari means Come This Way in Gubbi Gubbi language and is an opportunity to build positive relationships and share in local Indigenous culture. This is the ninth year the event has been hosted by United Synergies and continues to build momentum year on year.
The festival line-up includes performances by Australia’s best Indigenous Comedian Sean Choolburra, dynamic Torres Strait Islander Marcus Pedro and his Dance Kombat, The Floating Bridges and Yarwah – a band with a cutting edge contemporary sound born from ancient cultures and language.
The program also featured a range of guest presentations from local community artists and performers as well as workshops incorporating Indigenous art and culture. Mimburi Upper Mary Indigenous Corporation will be hosting a weaving circle and the Goombuckar Indigenous Cultural Bus will provide interactive storytelling and art activities throughout the day.
Noosa Come Together’s goal is to deliver a quality family and community event that brings everyone together to raise funds for people with disabilities in our communities.
It also gives the opportunity for charities who support people with disabilities to come together to fundraise so that they can continue to offer much needed water activities for people with disabilities in our community.
The day featured great live music from the likes of local legends Barry Charles, Bob Abbott and local disabled artists. There will be a 2nd stage delivering youth performances, a restaurant food court with cooking lessons on a smaller stage, a kids’ funfair, a charity field and river activities.
