Carols in the Park 2007

This Sunday afternoon I’ll be heading to Len Shearer Reserve in Booragoon for Carols in the Park.

The publicity for the event says:

This Sunday, join 98.5 Sonshine FM and rekindle the true spirit of Christmas at Carols in the Park.From 4:30 p.m. there are activities for everyone. Carols begin at 7:30 p.m. hosted by Graham Mabury and Miranda Miller with music from Midland Brick Brass and the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

Bring a picnic dinner or grab something to eat from one of the food stalls.

98.5 Sonshine FM will be broadcasting live from 5:00 p.m. so come along and meet the team.

Carols in the Park, this Sunday at Len Shearer Reserve, Marcus Avenue Booragoon. Presented by Mt Pleasant Baptist Church and proudly supported by 98.5 Sonshine FM.

I’ll be one of the team broadcasting live for 98.5 Sonshine FM from the venue. I’ll be joined by Bevan Jones, one of our extremely talented weekend announcers from 5:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. From 7:30 p.m. we put the main programme from the stage live to air.

If you’re in the Perth area and thinking of being part of a Carols by Candlelight event this year, why not make it this one? It’s very professionally put together and there are lots of activities before the carols start to keep the kids entertained.

I especially want you to drop in and say hello. I’d love the opportunity to meet a few fellow bloggers. Just find your way to our broadcast area and introduce yourself. Don’t be shy. We know each other already through the blogosphere so wander up and say hello.

The Christmas Pageant

christmaspageant.jpgI put my hand up.

We had a phone call at 98.5 Sonshine FM last week from someone looking for any volunteers to take on the task of being a street announcer for this year’s RAC Channel 7 Christmas Pageant.

Fellow announcer, John Donoghue, and I put our hands up to help out.

Tonight we went to a quick briefing at Channel 7. We were given our scripts, our official shirts and a few instructions on what is required on the night.

Essentially our job involves being at one of ten points along the route of the pageant to tell the audience what they’re seeing. We’ll be introducing each of the floats as they pass by and giving some background information on each of the participating groups.

It’s been many years since I’ve been to the Channel 7 Christmas Pageant. I remember mum taking us many years ago. We got there nice and early to get a good spot and then watched the parade of colourful floats and performers.

If you’re in the Perth area and thinking of joining the crowds to enjoy the evening, it kicks off from 8:30 p.m. in the city with a number of roads being closed from 6:30 p.m. I’d suggest getting in early for a good position. John and I will be announcing on the corner of Murray and William Streets, just outside the Wentworth Hotel.

If you’re heading into the city to be part of the fun, make sure you track us down and say hello.
