PBS Volunteer News 4, 2017

Busy times at PBS, there’s a lot of activity and so much to organise. But it’s worth it, because it’s all in the name of PBS, Melbourne’s progressive broadcaster of specialist music, powered by amazing volunteers. 
Thanks to one and all. 

IWD at PBSFM captured by Christine Brackenhoff, Mel Page, Bridget Small, Sarah Pratt, Josie Smart, Sophie Woods and Nick Brown

March 8 was a real highlight for PBS because we celebrated International Women’s Day and had a fantastic team of volunteers who championed women and non binary voices.  It kick started with a full house for The Breakfast Spread with on air talent from Beth AQ, Sarah Occhino, Hannah Donnelly, Parvyn Kaur Bennett, and Ajak Kwai, Roj Amedi, Triana Hernandez and Josie Smart, Behind the scenes, producer Sophie Woods kept things moving, Nick Brown made everyone breakfast, and Kerrie, Natalie, both came in early to video the event.  Later that day, Helen Jennings presented Roots of Rhythm with Kelly Auty, Jane Hendry played vocal group classics, Jan Dale span the blues on Jumpin’ The Blues, DJ  Ladysoul did Soul Time, Lyndelle presented The Afterglow. Ruby Woods and Katie Harrigan assisted Alicia engineer the studio 5 Live with BroadsMonica followed that with  Against the Tide,  Ruby Soho filled in for Shock Treatment,  Claire Dickson covered Pojama People,  Madi Wright did her legendary show: Be Suburban. Bridget Small, Christine Brackenhoff and Melanie Page provided stellar social media coverage. Then deep in Brunswick, Grace K and Erica presented the The Punk Singer at The Spotted Mallard.  IWD was a huge day for PBS with ace content, the coolest announcers, volunteers and special guests pulling it all together. It's a new chapter in the PBS story, and if you’d like to be part of the action, why don’t you volunteer?

EVENT VOLUNTEERING
Calling all night owls and party people! PBS is looking for event volunteers to volunteer on the door and the merch desk of a new night starting up Saturday March 25 at the Evelyn called Momentum.  Eclectic by nature but strongly rooted in the funk, hip-hop, neo-soul and jazz scene, Momentum is an opportunity to showcase the amazing array of sounds emerging from our local community (and beyond) and simultaneously nourish the already strong connection between the PBS family and the vibrant Melbourne music scene.  This promises to be a great partnership with Foreign Brothers, a showcase of hot new music, as well as very fun night.  Send your EOI to volunteer to hr@pbsfm.org.au.
