Make waves with ra­dio jin­gle en­try

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News - Therese Col­man

Au­gusta’s 2 Oceans FM is on the search for lo­cal tal­ent to cre­ate the sta­tion’s new jin­gle.

Man­ager Pip Mat­tiske joined the team in June and has been work­ing with a team of vol­un­teers to “shake up” the sta­tion’s at­mos­phere.

“There’s a lot of fan­tas­tic tal­ent in Mar­garet River and Au­gusta, so we would like a lo­cal mu­si­cian to cre­ate some­thing for us,” she said.

“It can be what­ever you like it to be, whether you play an in­stru­ment, you’re in a garage band or at home pro­duc­ing mu­sic on your com­puter.

“Our fo­cus is on lo­cals and that’s who we want to col­lab­o­rate with.”

The com­pe­ti­tion is open to all ages, mu­si­cal gen­res and pro­duc­tion styles. The ra­dio sta­tion has been op­er­at­ing since 2009 and is run by vol­un­teers through the Au­gusta Com­mu­nity Re­source Centre.

“We are also al­ways on the look­out for new peo­ple to join our team, whether it’s broad­cast­ing or help­ing us with the mu­sic li­brary,” Ms Mat­tiske said.

“Vol­un­teer­ing here would be a great op­por­tu­nity for a stu­dent want­ing to get ex­pe­ri­ence in the broad­cast­ing in­dus­try, as that’s how I started out my­self.”
