Earlier this year, Point Blank Radio Students, Sadiece and Henry, appeared on the affluent Soho Radio to host a series of shows helping promote Nordoff Robbins’ country-wide event, Get Loud, as well as their excellent music therapy services.
Get Loud, which took place on 25 September, saw Nordoff Robbins host 12 gigs across 9 different cities in the UK. Headliners for the event included the likes of Akala, Frank Turner, MNEK and more, with the shows focussing on uniting NR’s supporters in a celebration of music, health and wellbeing. All of the shows which aired in the lead up to the Get Loud event are now available to stream online and see the talented radio students play some infectious tracks, interview of Nordoff Robbins’ hard-working staff and explore the world of music therapy. If you’re interested in gaining real-world experience in the Radio Broadcasting sector, we can help you get your foot in the door.
