January Update

I hope you’re all having a lovely Sunday and are not stuck anywhere near the bitter winter wind hitting the south coast today and that your stomachs are full of Sunday roast.

You will have noticed I’m sure that Southsea has been playing host to Icebreaker festival so for this weekend at least real music has very much lived in the pubs around Albert Road. Oh, what fun we all had! Some of the most exciting unsigned artists in the country all within half a mile of each other over 36 hours in Portsmouth. The only shame was that I could see only one act at a time. If you missed out, do not fret. You can still listen to many of the acts present through the Icebreaker website.

In the mean time, the website is continuing to improve with more content about our featured artists, information about the station, our new and improved gig guide and blog posts from Mark Wiseman.

The fundraising for our FM transmitter is continuing apace, but we’re not complacent and we still need your help. You can help us reach our goal by visiting our GoFundMe campaign, sharing it with your friends, sharing it with your enemies and if you can, throwing a couple of quid in the pot!

Most importantly though, don’t forget to listen to us! We broadcast great music across Greater Portsmouth through DAB and across the whole wide world through the wonders of the internet on TuneIn – directly through our site on the widget to the right or through your mobile/smart devices of any flavour.

If you’re a local artist or manager of a venue anywhere in the PO1 to PO22 post code areas (anywhere between Titchfield to the west through to Felpham to the east) you can have your events featured both here on the site and on air at The Flash, just e-mail the details to gigs@theflashonair.co.uk.

Watch this space, because we will soon be allowing venue owners and local artists the facility to add their events directly to the site!
