Ok, alas Doncolites, we did not succeed in winning the city bid. We are however, still here waving the banner high for our beloved Doncopolitan. There’s always a round two, and then we’ll be ready to rumble.
We haven’t been writing much of late, we’ve been busy teaming up with the super powers of local radio Sinefm. The folks at Sine offer very cost-effective training on how to create you’re own radio show and we just figured, what the heck, let’s give it a go! And from that merry venture manifested the Doncopolitian Radio Show presented by local artists Jo Carline and Rachel Horne. If you want to know what’s happening in the local creative and culture scene then tune in for local art and music news, from the highbrow to the down right bizare.
Previous shows have covered topics such as “The Old Leopard Juke Box”, “Being a Boyo” and the “Dirty of Town” the girls pick an eclectic mixture of tracks to suit a variety of tastes dedicated to the theme or special guests. So if you wanna find out what’s popping in the Donc tune in on 102.6 Sinefm every 1st and 3rd Wednesday.
