While Hoagy Carmichael’s song Heart and Soul was about romantic love, it is also a very fitting by-line for the radio station BayFM 100.3.
BayFM: Heart and Soul of the Bay, encapsulates the absolute enthusiasm, energy, and deep connection that local radio brings to its audience. Established in 1993, staffed by volunteers and funded through sponsorship, the station has run to its own beat, offering diverse music with a broad range of programming.
In an exciting, new chapter, BayFM will soon be broadcasting the Heart and Soul of the Bay two sessions a week out of a new studio in the heart of Manly Harbour Village. This is in partnership with the Manly Harbour Village Chamber of Commerce and will provide opportunity for Village events and traders to be showcased on the airwaves.
Station Manager Ted Seymour says, “The whole BayFM team looks forward to engaging with our Bayside community and businesses, and embracing the region’s unsurpassed lifestyle and location assets”.
“In addition to the studio broadcasts, BayFM has additionally committed to monthly on site promotion and live cross promotion at Manly’s ever popular Creative and Jan Powers Farmers markets. “
To have a radio station with a potential audience of over 320,000 people operating out of the local area will create a real buzz; featuring great music, local stories and promoting what the local area has to offer.
It’s hoped that locals will tune in to the station and that local businesses will support it – Heart and Soul.
