On Sunday 30 October 2016 Phoenix FM broadcast live for six hours from the Maldon Folk Festival. We had a direct line from the main stage and were able to broadcast the performances as they were happening as well as interviewing several of the artists themselves including Greg Champion. Weatherwise the day started out very nicely although a little windy but as the day wore on it got a bit scary as the day went along with the temperature dropping and the wind threatening to blow everyone away but it did not deter our intrepid crew. Outside Broadcast Team comprised Max Primmer, Simon Dillon, Peter Williams and Craig Whan
Phoenix FM broadcast live for five hours from the Murran Dhelk Indigenous Football Netball Carnival on Sunday 16 October 2016. It was very cold and the windy sometimes almost blew us away but we persevered and had a lovely time. Phoenix FM members who took part on the day were Bill Whitbread, Anne Conway, Sue Tuitupou, Peter Williams, Craig Whan, Tanya Jones and Skye Anderson. We also gained a new young presenter as the afternoon went on - Izzy Tuitupou! Izzy, despite his tender years was not shy either on or off the microphone and it was he who approached Western Bulldogs player Jake Stringer and brought him over for an interview. The rest of us were too shy to do that.
Phoenix FM did a live broadcast from Bendigo All Breeds Goat Expo and it was very enjoyable. We even interviewed some of the goats as the pictures will show! Seriously though there was a lot of very interesting information provided by the people we interviewed. A very enjoyable way to put in the morning - broadcast went from 10.00am to 12.00 noon.
