It's really tough out there, and nobody has a crystal ball to tell us when we will return to normal...or whatever the new normal ends up being. Incredibly hard hit has been the arts - music, theatre etc - and the 'music junkies' here at 107.3HFM are in serious withdrawal at not being able to see live music! We have done our best to showcase our local talent here during Covid-19, and encourage our community to support those performers unable to earn a living, by looking at their online merch, or legally downloading their music.
We are doing this though, in our own time of need, as the restrictions have meant that we are unable to fundraise in the way we normally would - selling sausage sizzles, holding quiz nights and gig's, being present at community events - and we also need your support to keep doing what we do. We are a wholly volunteer run organisation, nobody gets paid, but we still have rent, power bills, phone and internet, equipment maintenance etc. and we are struggling.
Help us keep supporting our local artists, showcasing local, national and international talent so they can come back strong when restrictions are lifted. As long as we are able to broadcast, you know you can still hear awesome music! Stay strong everybody, together we can get through this.
