Calling all musos

Our branch has been a long time sponsor of Radio Eastern 98.1fm so we’ve become pretty familiar with a few of the volunteers of this wonderful and local radio station. As likeminded community organisations we came up with an idea to bring greater participation, interaction and interest in local music. The 'New Talent' music competition immediately took hold and was very quickly taken up by all at the station and the other local Community Bank® branches.

With 'New Talent' music competition is now up and running many entrants already have their music submitted into the system. The quality of the music is a testament to the wonderful talent of the local musicians.

On 5 May at 6pm on 98.1FM, the first hour of the show will be dedicated to playing a selection of the entrants. Listeners will be able to vote for their favourite music with the monthly winner taking home $500 for the most popular entry. Entries are open until March 2019.
