photos: BBC radio show shines spotlight on Burnham musicians
musicians in Burnham-On-Sea got a chance to perform on BBC radio
on Thursday evening.
broadcaster's BBC Introducing in the West programme is
currently on an open mic night tour of the region and visited
Burnham-On-Sea's Ritz Acoustic Club.
Bonham and Richard Pitt, the presenter duo on the show, hope to
raise awareness about small music venues and pubs across the region,
all of which are supporting new artists.
Introducing broadcast from the Ritz Social Club, joined by
Matt Faulkner, the drivetime presenter on BBC Somerset.
Pitt said: "BBC Introducing supports unsigned, undiscovered
and under the radar musicians. It's great that there are so many
thriving open mic nights in Somerset, doing exactly the same."
programme is broadcast weekly on BBC Somerset, 8pm-10pm, on Saturdays.
