You may have seen our RadioFlag tab up the top there, and if you read it you’ll know that our very own Boom’s Back Yard won Best Music Show last year AND our featured artist Kat Wilson won Best Artist.
Well, this time around we have not one, not three, but TWO major announcements to kick off 2016!
1. Our local rock & metal show Full Metal Jacket won Best Music Show, right beside a college station from Cleveland and one from New York!
2. Boom Radio has one BEST COLLEGE RADIO STATION in the world
Host of Full Metal Jacket, Ophelia has said in our official press release, “I’m humbled to be recognised for presenting the music I love on the only metal/rock show in Perth. I hope in 2016 Full Metal Jacket continues to grow its audience and as a specialty radio show itself. FMJ all the way, man!”
According to some VIP’s over in the states Boom Radio won over heaps of other international student-run radio stations, just by being us.
Why did we attain Station of The Year? Because we are local. We promote local businesses, our staff are students living and studying in Perth and most of all we promote local artists!
RadioFlag founder and CEO, Mr Anthony Roman, has said, “Our ‘Station of the Year’ RadioStar Awards winners, best represent the spirit of Free form Radio, and the RadioFlag mission to grow indie, community, internet and especially college radio. In 2015 BOOM Radio was the clear winner, by showcasing new indie bands and their music local to Australia and specifically Perth. Their DJs presented original content such as news, information, opinion and entertainment from a local perspective, sharing it with a world wide audience. Together with BOOM Radio, we will continue opening ears everywhere to not only emerging artists and a fresh sound, but also new cultures entirely. Congratulations BOOM Radio!”
On behalf of the Boom Team from 2015 and going into 2016 thank you to RadioFlag for your support, and the judges of RadioStar for your decision.
