Southern Hemisphere CentreForce Family
Thanks to the good people & their kind generosity of WASBF, Pro Sound Foundation & The Civic hotel Inglewood. A new musical story in Perth is about to start. Here is our story so far.
Like many hundreds and thousands of people around the world, Perth arts industry was brought to its knees early part of last year. Although Perth has remained overall well protected and has not suffered mass disruption and loss of life unlike many other countries. The arts industry is struggling to get up and running again.
Without people or organizations like WASBF & Pro Sound Foundation, quite frankly there just wouldn’t be any chance of ‘The Southern Hemisphere CentreForce Family’ comprehending holding a free community music event in 2021.
Ironically the SHCF group has been setup as a direct result of lockdown restrictions. Last April the vast majority of Perth city workforce were asked to work from home. These new surrounding brought new situations. One of which is the ability to play music whilst you are working from the comfort of your dining room table. So much so the radio industry has recorded a 250% rise month on month until December 2020. I’m sure you are fully aware, with your computer being connected to the internet. You are no longer restricted to the FM signal ability of just your local radio stations. You have the ability to tune into any radio station on the world wide web.
Perth is a proud multicultural community with large pockets of expats from all around the world. SHCF is made up of our local community members that share the same interest, in not only music but we all share the love for the same radio station, which is ‘CentreForce 883 DAB radio UK’. CentreForce radio was started in 1987 in east London as an underground pirate radio station. It was the must listen to radio station to find out info about the forth coming weekends parties by nearly all teenagers in and around the London area. By 1990 The radio station stopped broadcasting and laid dormant for the past 28 years. Then in 2018 the original owners of CentreForce got back together again and started an FM fully licensed radio station. The station has gone from strength to strength. Even switching across from FM signal to the new DAB digital signal.
Expats from the UK have been logging into the online app for CentreForce by the 100’s over the past 12 months. So much so that up until 6 months ago. Four days of the week the radio station would stop live broadcasting at midnight and play prerecorded shows until 6 – 7 o’clock am UK time. This time frame being the peak time for people tuning in from the southern hemisphere. The radio station moved quickly to fill this gap with new Dj’s for the Australian market. A new era was born with local UK down time being turned into WA breakfast time. The station now has live Dj’s 7 days a week 24 hours a day. To be able to communicate with their vast Lisners base.
This has opened up a whole new level of exposure. WASBF & Pro Sound Foundation is the first organization outside of the UK ever to be linked with CentreForce radio. In celebration of WASBF & Pro Sound Foundation sponsoring & working alongside SHCF on their first CentreForce ‘FREE’ family community event in Perth. CentreForce is linking WASBF to their hit Aussie breakfast show (Alex Little’s, Sunny side up breakfast show). Alex is Live every Thursday 8-10 am WA time.
The Southern Hemisphere CentreForce family event ‘on the streets’ is being held on the front terrace of the Civic Hotel, 981 Beaufort Street Inglewood, Perth. This is 100% FREE family friendly event starting at 15:00 – 21:00 on Saturday the 27th of March.
There is going to be live Dj’s playing an array of music from the late 80’s house, funk, soul, disco and rave. Music from the past, right through to the sounds of today.
