Friends of FM – August 2017

WELCOME OUR NEW PRESENTERS

Afghan YouthCity Park Radio Multicultural Unit held a small function to introduce the community and families to the new Afghan Youth program on the station, hosted by Zahra, Madineh, Tayebeh and Saeideh.

As with any welcome, there needs to be a cake to cut … thank you Luigi for the retro radio to slice. There were words of welcome from the President Craig Ellis, and our patron Don wing spoke of the importance of a multicultural society not only locally, but statewide, nationally and internationally.

City Park Radio also acknowledges the great work done by Ros Lewis & Robyn Flittner in assisting Zahra, Madineh, Saeideh and Tayebeh with the program. If only you could see the organisation that goes on behind the scenes and the flourish of messages on WhatsApp… you would be amazed!

The program is heard on the 1st & 3rd Mondays of the month at 7pm.

WHAT IS COMMUNITY RADIO

on airCommunity broadcasting is Australia’s largest independent media sector and is a successful examples of grassroots media. Over 5 million people a week tune in to a not-for-profit, community-owned and operated just like City Park Radio. Stations provide programming that caters to the needs and interest groups of their communities and contribute to and reflect an Australia that is an open society, a strong democracy and a vibrant culture.
Community broadcasters are united by six guiding principles:

  1. Promote harmony and diversity, and contribute to an inclusive, cohesive and culturally diverse Australian community
  2. Pursue principles of democracy, access and equity, especially for people and issues not adequately represented in other media
  3. Enhance the diversity of programming choices available to the public and present programs that expand the variety of viewpoint broadcast in Australia
  4. Demonstrate independence in programming as well as in editorial and management decisions
  5. Support and develop local arts and music
  6. Increase community involvement in broadcasting

City Park Radio will continue to provide all people in our community access to community radio. Our style is not restricted to a single message or a single playlist style of music.  “Listen to what the man said”, we play the widest variety of music too!

REELIN’ IN THE YEARS – Classic Album

FramptonPETER FRAMPTON – Frampton Comes Alive!

Released in 1976, Frampton Comes Alive was a surprise hit for Peter Frampton. A double live album, it became the biggest selling live album in the United States and smashed sales records all around the world. Frampton Comes Alive is considered by many to be the finest live rock album of all time. It stayed at the top of the US charts for 10 weeks, was the biggest selling album of 1976, and totalled over 11 million copies sold.

This all happened after Frampton had previously released four solo albums which sold poorly. Frampton felt that a live album would better reflect his talents and recorded a series of concerts in 1975. It is a true live album with very few studio “fix-ups” done prior to its release – a rarity for the time.

The album contained dynamic vocals and guitar work from Peter Frampton – especially his distinctive talk-box guitar which was a key feature of hit singles from the album Do You Feel Like We Do and Show Me the Way.

The double album also sold for just one dollar more than a single album – a big impetus for increased sales!

Live albums can be a bit hit or miss in their quality, but Frampton Comes Alive set the benchmark for showcasing a performer’s ability to deliver in front of their audience.
