Radio Active Announces Revenue From Cuba For Chch
Wellington's Radio Active.FM switched slightly to the left on Saturday 2 April, with a new frequency clearer, bigger, louder faster.
The switchover happened at 8am and saw Radio Active move from its long-time frequency of 89FM to 88.6FM. It will still broadcast worldwide on www.radioactive.fm
Radio Active also announced the amount raised from the charity Cuba For Chch.
Cuba For Chch began as an initiative by local bar workers and Wellington musicians. The interest in helping out was so great that the event grew to over 20 bands and DJs and a swag of comedians across eight venues centered around Wellington's Cuba St.
The money raised totalled $34,570.
Radio Active sincerely thanks the bars and artists who gave freely their time and talents. And a big thank you to the thousands of people who attended Cuba For Chch and brought the street alive.
The venues included Mighty Mighty, Matterhorn, Good Luck, San Francisco Bath House, Fringe Bar, Southern Cross and Havana.
Performers included TV Disco and Maximum Joy, 47 Diamantes, Louis Baker, Bella Kalolo, Nudge, Hopscotch, Hypeasgus, Kev Fresh, Redbird Jnr, Fat Freddys Drop, Bang Bang Eche, Family Cactus, WTFFF, Don Lucito, Eva Prowse, Barnaby Weir, Martyn Pepperell, Ras Twig, DJ Zen and The Rounds.
A host of comedians MC'd by Fergus Aitkin performed Stand Up for Christchurch at Fringe Bar.
Radio Active sends big love out to Starfish, Agwa, Message Traders Publicity, Western Audio, Parbs Percussion, Phantom Billstickers & Big Image Print for making the event possible.
Radio Active say everyone had so much fun it would be a shame not to do it again next year. Watch this space.
