Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

& Kindest regards

We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Radio Show Latest Update!

Hello guys and gals,

We just wanted to let you know about some upcoming radio shows playing International New Music from around the world!

We have 2 International new music radio shows coming up in December Friday 5th and Friday 12th (14.00 - 16.00 GMT) of December in conjunction with Radio Christmas. This is a festive charity radio station raising funds for Streetkids

We are also planning an online 2 hour Christmas day New Music Radio show and New years day which we would love you to be a part of.

Please email us your new music tunes with bios and links! We would also love to hear your festive tunes or traditional songs from your country to celebrate Christmas.

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

Please email Coral

coralroseradio@gmail with your new music or if you would like to get involved with Coral Rose Radio

Many thanks

Kind regards

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists.

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

& Kindest regards

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Radio Show Latest Update!

Hello guys and gals,

We just wanted to let you know about some upcoming radio shows playing International New Music from around the world!

We have 2 International new music radio shows coming up in December Friday 5th and Friday 12th (14.00 - 16.00 GMT) of December in conjunction with Radio Christmas. This is a festive charity radio station raising funds for Streetkids

We are also planning an online 2 hour Christmas day New Music Radio show and New years day which we would love you to be a part of.

Please email us your new music tunes with bios and links! We would also love to hear your festive tunes or traditional songs from your country to celebrate Christmas.

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

Please email Coral

coralroseradio@gmail with your new music or if you would like to get involved with Coral Rose Radio

Many thanks

Kind regards

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

& Kindest regards

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Radio Show Latest Update!

Hello guys and gals,

We just wanted to let you know about some upcoming radio shows playing International New Music from around the world!

We have 2 International new music radio shows coming up in December Friday 5th and Friday 12th (14.00 - 16.00 GMT) of December in conjunction with Radio Christmas. This is a festive charity radio station raising funds for Streetkids

We are also planning an online 2 hour Christmas day New Music Radio show and New years day which we would love you to be a part of.

Please email us your new music tunes with bios and links! We would also love to hear your festive tunes or traditional songs from your country to celebrate Christmas.

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

Please email Coral

coralroseradio@gmail with your new music or if you would like to get involved with Coral Rose Radio

Many thanks

Kind regards

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

& Kindest regards

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Radio Show Latest Update!

Hello guys and gals,

We just wanted to let you know about some upcoming radio shows playing International New Music from around the world!

We have 2 International new music radio shows coming up in December Friday 5th and Friday 12th (14.00 - 16.00 GMT) of December in conjunction with Radio Christmas. This is a festive charity radio station raising funds for Streetkids

We are also planning an online 2 hour Christmas day New Music Radio show and New years day which we would love you to be a part of.

Please email us your new music tunes with bios and links! We would also love to hear your festive tunes or traditional songs from your country to celebrate Christmas.

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

Please email Coral

coralroseradio@gmail with your new music or if you would like to get involved with Coral Rose Radio

Many thanks

Kind regards

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!.

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

Latest update!

I have a passion for news and reporting stories… so why then, do I neglect to update my blog on a daily basis!

Even now as I sit here and stare at the computer screen I am gazing at the clock quietly ticking away…

it feels like the last six weeks have scurried by… with endless opportunities to learn and discover new things in the world of radio… something to which I feel truly blessed!

After six weeks I feel more confident, assertive, skilled and professional. I feel at home with top industry professionals and feel I have found my feet there.

I feel like a human sponge absorbing the experience, filling what seems to be an endless thirst for all that is new and challenging.

I need to remind myself to eat and reflect each day so that I do not become lost in the emotion of it all! What a wonderful journey I am on…  I hope you share this incredible adventure with me…

Love and hugs to everyone who has supported me…

and to those who continue to support me :)

Radio Show Latest Update!

Hello guys and gals,

We just wanted to let you know about some upcoming radio shows playing International New Music from around the world!

We have 2 International new music radio shows coming up in December Friday 5th and Friday 12th (14.00 - 16.00 GMT) of December in conjunction with Radio Christmas. This is a festive charity radio station raising funds for Streetkids

We are also planning an online 2 hour Christmas day New Music Radio show and New years day which we would love you to be a part of.

Please email us your new music tunes with bios and links! We would also love to hear your festive tunes or traditional songs from your country to celebrate Christmas.

Radio Christmas... Radio Gaga!

Hello guys and gals,

Well we are not into the middle of November and less than 6 weeks before its Christmas!! This year has been a truly memorable year! We have really enjoyed helping to promote bands via our radio shows, website and twitter, playing your new music and providing free coverage of festivals / events!

We have 2 new music radio shows coming up in December and a few online broadcasts too which we would like you to be a part of! If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

Please email Coral

coralroseradio@gmail with your new music or if you would like to get involved with Coral Rose Radio

Many thanks

Kind regards

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

If you have any new music, any genre, any language that you would like us to play on our December new music radio shows (2 hours) please email us your mp3s coralroseradio@gmail.com and we will try to play as many as we physically can. Please also include a short bio and your links so we can give you as much free promo as possible ;)

I never knew it could be so hard..

I am working really hard behind the scenes to try to raise money for the Radio Broadcasting course (over 4k) which is turning out to be harder than I thought. This is an amazing opportunity to break into the world of professional broadcasting, working alongside some of the best in industry which I definitely don´t want to miss!

If anyone has any paid projects that we can help with before Christmas I would really, really appreciate it if you would let us know! We are doing some voluntary radio shows before Christmas and free promo so if you would like our help, please let us know. Would anyone consider sponsoring us?!

I am not really sure who reads my blog … does anyone really care anyway?? lol but I do hope that we have helped many of you, new music artists and bands, either through INSPIRATION, PROMOTION, RADIO AIRPLAY or TWEETS!

Thank you for reading this far and for YOUR support, following us and sharing in our passion for International World Music.

Remember you can support us here

Happy New Year!? 2015 is going to be THE YEAR!!

Hello guys & gals,

Temporarily out of action?? Hell no!

A quick update just to let you know what is happening in the world of Coral Rose Radio!

As you may know, over the last few years we have been supporting new music artists and bands, all around the world. We have promoted bands via twitter, facebook and via our websites, as well as, playing their new music on our UK Radio Shows… all on a voluntary/unpaid basis…We have also promoted new music artists and bands via our radio contacts / social networks. New music is something we are very passionate about!

In Jan 2015, myself, Coral Rose is going back to school to polish up her broadcasting radio journalism skills and spend 3 - 4 months training alongside some top industry professionals at a TOP NORTHWEST RADIO STATION. Not only that, this may result in being able to spend a couple of weeks work experience at the BBC!  You can also rest assured that during this time I WILL HAVE A FEW OF YOUR CDS IN MY BACK PACK WITH ME :)

The result of this is likely to be; more exposure via the radio station, more twitter followers, more website hits, more listeners and more industry connections… all GREAT for our International New Music Artists around the WORLD!

So what does this mean in terms of promoting new music FREE & the work we do??? Well, in the next couple of months we will continue supporting voluntary/community radio stations & groups in any way we can (FREE). Please email me if you would like our support; coralroseradio@gmail.com

Whilst we are unable to help financially we would love to help, time permitting, in any way we can whether this is providing content, jingles, radio shows and new music for your station or promotion for your group/new music band.

In the next couple of months we are asking people to continue sending us their new music for our internet radio station and for use on radio stations we  work alongside. We have been able to provide more free promotion to those of you who have mailed us a hard copy of your CD as sometimes they are used by other radio presenters too as ‘gap fillers’ on their radio shows… 

TWITTER / EMAIL / RADIO PROMO  - If you would like FREE PROMO via our website and twitter there are many ways YOU can get involved…

1. Email us your tunes

2. Mail us a prize (CD or Merchandise) for our WIN PAGE

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/win.php

3. Be part of our A - Z

We do ask people to please donate at least £10 for this due to the amount of time and work involved…

http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

How you can help us…

1. Make a small donation

2. Be part of our A - Z

3. Check out our Ebay World Music Items

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/worldmusic75 - all proceeds go to support the work we do

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported Coral Rose Radio so far … especially a very special thank you to the beautiful and fabulous Shelli Marsh, the MARVELLOUS Marla Mase who is SIMPLY AMAZING, The MEGA TALENTED electronic pop producers, Eastintya, the sensationally gifted young singer/song writers; Claire Stevens and Lily Brooke just to name a few!. I would also like to thank The Grimps (animated new music band) & creator Richard Sirgiovanni for allowing me to be involved in their exciting new project!

Please email Coral

coralroseradio@gmail with your new music or if you would like to get involved with Coral Rose Radio

Many thanks

Kind regards

One step beyond!

Monday 18 August - Blog update!

A very exciting day today guys and gals seeing ’ a man about a dog’ with a view to progressing my career or upping my gain a little in the WORLD of Coral Rose Radio!

How exciting is that,  or how nerve wracking is that? To try to come out of the little league and safety blanket of community radio to commercial radio is something not for the faint hearted…

So why the change?

Having happily been supported by family, friends, listeners and twitter followers in my role as ‘volunteer, unpaid radio presenter’ for the last 10 years I have decided that the time has now come to see if Coral Rose is able to thrive and work alongside the BIG BOYS!

So this means - REAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, TOP NOTCH RECORDING STUDIOS & MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TURN MY AMATEUR 'HOBBY’ (Something I truly love) into something more professional… Wow and something that I might even be paid to do :)

In some ways, this is a return to back to SCHOOL and learning from the VERY BEST in the industry. Hopefully I will not have picked up any bad habits along the way that need addressing and any initial teething problems will be ironed out…

As a firm believer of nothing ventured, nothing gained… I realise that I have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE but everything to gain…

* My presenting skills will be polished

* Hopefully, my bad habits erased…

* I will gain an insight into the world of commercial radio

* I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best in the industry

How does this effect what I do now?!

- My twitter feed may experience periods of frenzy, as well as, periods of unexplained absence (This I apologise in advance)

- Promoting new music artists will continue, as will my efforts to get new music CDs onto radio stations rotation ;)

- We will continue to cover festivals and events

So in summary, Coral Rose Radio is undergoing a TEMPORARY FACELIFT… after which you should see a more skilled and professional radio presenter, keeping new music in the heart of everything we do. Times they are a changing… but for YOU the listener and new music artist/band they signal an exciting time where only BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS can result from it!

Keeping music in the heart of everything we do…

New Music, all genres, all languages from all around the WORLD…

Thank you for your continued support of Coral Rose Radio!

Kindest regards Coral Rose

Latest Update!! Plus Radio Submission Guidelines!

Everything is great in the world of Coral Rose Radio :)

Donate a CD Appeal

Unfortunately we have had to scrap this idea due to lack of interest / support :(  However, we have some other ideas that we hope you guys will like :)

What is new!

We have recently been chosen to host a series of RADIO workshops at this years What is Music festival in Burgos Spain representing England which is an incredible honor for us. The workshops will take place over 5 days (Mon - Fri) and each session will last 3 hours.

We are currently trying to raise funds to help us towards this as we have only been allocated a small budget to help towards travelling… Most of the expense we will bear ourselves in relation to food, travel and other associated costs towards attending the event, however, we are looking to raise funds for items we need for the workshops themselves, such as, handheld recorders, small musical instruments, headphones, etc.

Here is a link to the webpage with more details!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

We are focusing on 3 main areas….

1. Donate a tenner - Anyone who donates a tenner or more will appear on our new A - Z of music artists
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/introducing.php

2. Sponsor us! - Be one of our official WIM sponsors and have your logo at the bottom of the page!
http://www.coralroseradio.co.uk/wim-our-involvement.php

3. Help with any of the items we need - in return for free promo / publicity

We have also updated our WIN pages and are asking any artists / musicians if they would like to be part of the Competitions page. This is an excellent way to get some FREE PROMO in return for a prize for our listeners. (CD, T Shirts, Festival Tickets etc!)

Radio Shows

Radio Shows - We now have 2 hours a fortnight that is soley dedicated to International New Music Artists /Bands on our UK Radio Show (streamed online too) We accept mp3 submissions and voice intros for any artists wanting to intro their own track (please intro the track only as I will give out your links etc) This is something we do totally free and unfunded for all new music artists. We not only play the tracks but we give our listeners info about the artists, where to find them and links etc

Submission for New Music Artists / Bands

  1. 1.      Mp3s only / Radio Edit / No Covers

Please submit new music as separate mp3s not via dropbox or as a zip file – this makes it easier for us. We do not have time to access links or watch youtube videos J

 Please also ensure these are radio edit! Thank you!

  1. 2.      Short Bio

 

Where you are from, names of the band members (if any), links to your website, twitter, facebook etc

  1. 3.      Pictures

 

Any pictures we can use on our website or in order to promote your band

  1. 4.      No PR managers / agents please J

The reason we started to promote new music artists / bands was to help relatively unknown bands from all around the world get some free promo/publicity and radio airplay. We realize that money is often a big issue for new music artists & bands struggling to find their way in the music industry and wanted to do something to help, albeit in a small way…. Most of the artists we aim to help have no manager or label and the personal contact we have with the artists is something we value, above all.

We would like to think that via our websites, twitter feed and radio shows we can give something to International New Music artists from around the WORLD any language, any genre …

Submissions for Festivals – Festival Webpage

We have a very small selection of UK / SPAIN festivals appearing on our website. Appearing on our festival webpage is FREE so we kindly ask that any festival wanting us to include them please provide us with the following:

  1. Festival Logos
  2. Festival Pictures
  3. Festival Bio

 

As everything we do is FREE & Unfunded we would kindly ask for some patience in relation to radio airplay and submission on our webpage.

If you would like to know more, sponsor us or email us your new music contact coralroseradio@gmail.com

 

Many thanks in advance!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

 

WIM 2014 Something INCREDIBLE is happening!! What is Music Festival!!

April 2014 much needed update!!

A very exciting 2014 with some wonderful festivals coming up in the UK and beyond!

Its fair to say that the last couple of months have been difficult. I had an operation on my right hand in January which is still causing me considerable discomfort and pain. I was also told to slow down by my GP which wasn’t something I was expecting and prescribed with medication for angina…

Now things are slowly improving and I am able to continue, albeit to a very lesser extent, to help promote new music artists & bands via community radio & twitter. As always, everything we do for International New Music artists is free and totally unfunded. We would really love it if  the bands we have supported could support us, if only that was a little bit in returm… Sadly, this rarely happens and sometimes it can be quite soul destroying when you spend much of your time, energy and enthusiasm in helping to promote a band and they don’t even thank you or follow you on twitter :(

So whats happening right now?!

We currently have a 2 hours fortnightly radio show Festival Fusion & Saturday Sizzlers (over 45k listeners on the FM dial, streamed online & also on my websites after broadcast). We have free reign on the music we play as long as its radio edit :)

Exciting news

Myself and Ivan Alvan Avarez (co presenter from Madrid, Spain)  have WON a TUTOR competiton and have been selected to host music WORKSHOPS in Radio & Music at this years WIM (What is music) 2014 festival to be held in Burgos, Spain (July 2014).

We have a limited budget to do this so would really appreciate it if any one can help us with any of the items we need or additional items to make it an extra special event! In return, we can offer publicity via twitter / our websites and at the festival itself.

The things we will need includes:

* Hand held voice recorders

* Microphones

* Headphones

* Battery operated portable CD player

Musical Instruments

* Bongo type drums (small)

* recorders / flutes

* Shakers / Castanettes

* Triangles

* Small Glockenspiels

Anything that makes a noise that we can record!!

Extra things to make it EXTRA, EXTRA Special…

Participant T Shirts x 2 Presenters (with names)

                              x 50 Participants

Baseball caps? or promo items from companies?

Please take a look at the What is Music Website and our Festivals Page which confirms our participation in the event.

We would love you to be part of this really exciting opportunity!

Representing both England & Spain in a truly INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MEETING / EVENT!

Many thanks in advance

& Kindest regards
