Welcome to the world of Maude Garrett


I can add another thing to my ever-growing list of what I’m up to. My broadcasting course is finished and I’m now one of the presenters on FBi!

FBi is an independent, not-for-profit community radio station in Sydney, Australia.  FBi places a heavy emphasis on local alternative music: it has a policy that at least 50 per cent of its music content is to be Australian, of which at least half comes from Sydney musicians.

Not afraid to start at the bottom, I’m currently doing the ‘allnighter’ shift that sit somewhere pretty in the 1am-6am time slot. YIPPEEE!!

I love the stations commitment to new and local music so will start posting what songs I’ve been busting out.

If there is anything you’d love to see played (Beiber NOT included) then please leave a comment!

    Damn. I was awake then! Oh well, for your next shift you could check out Dead Letter Chorus. They’re a local alternative Sydney band who’d love the publicity, I’m sure.
    Other Aussie bands you might like to play:
    The Good China
    The Salvadors
    The Stoics
    Just some friendly suggestions!
