Get Gig Ready Radio
Get Gig Ready is also shining a spotlight on creative talent in the Ryde and Lane Cove area through a weekly radio and podcast series. Each week we profile a local artist or act - hear their music, talk about their creative process, and get their advice for other local artists.
This series is hosted by Felix Shannon on behalf of 2SER radio. You can listen live on Tuesday nights from 5PM or catch up online anytime.
