mwalters, 9th March 2015

Ben Harper in concertBay FM will host a massive 16 hours of live broadcasts over four days from the multi-award-winning Byron Bay Bluesfest. There will be plenty of live international and Australian artist interviews and crosses to performances on all of the main stages. These special broadcasts will be brought to you by a national team of Community radio presenters and producers that includes Mark Ward (2SER's Sideways Through Sound), Nik Tripp (Triple R), Michelle Smith (Radio Adelaide's Rhythm Stick), Stani Goma (PBS's Flight 1067 To Africa), Seth Jordan (CRN/CBAA/ ex-The Tiki Lounge). They'll be working alongside the funky Bay-FM team of Les Taylor aka 'The Honeydripper' (Cruisin' For A Bluesin'), Sista Mary (Mystery Train), Paul Martin (Crossroads), Anthony & Ken (Blues On The Bay) and Executive Producer William Martin.             

With yet another incredible line-up of crucial blues/roots performers at this year’s event - check it out here and including Ben Harper (pictured) - your station is invited to program as much of these special Easter broadcasts as suits your needs, and allow your listeners to experience some great festival music and talk over the long holiday weekend.
