Vectis Radio are dedicating the station to a local music day on December 1, and have pledged that every song played on FM104.6 and online at vectisradio.com between 10am and 7pm will have a local connection to the Isle of Wight.
The station is seeking to boost awareness of local artists who are going through a tough time because of lockdown and not being able to play live. The station has played local tracks at least once an hour for a number of years but now they want to dedicate a day to music from Island bands, singers, songwriters and record producers.
Vectis Radio station manager, Ian Mac, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for Island musicians. They have a platform to introduce themselves to the Island and our listeners will get a day to enjoy all the best music out there. And there’s a lot of it!
“We need to support our local musical talents when they need it most … which is now.”
If you’d like your music to be part of local music day send your mp3 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
