Diversity Programming on SYN Media

Season 2 is well under way and the crews from Mayibuye and Wanderlust Melbourne are having a great time on air with just a few weeks left of their program for 2014.  Each Saturday morning is filled with dance, politics, humour and music as the shows presenters share their view on life in Melbourne.  Tune in to 90.7FM from 10am to hear more.

We’re really looking forward to hearing what the members of the teams do next at SYN Media.

We will have some flash new pics to show off soon, after the in-studio shoot by Finbar O’Mallon at the weekend.  Watch this space.

In the meantime, here is a photo of the photographer taking photos!

Harmony Day 2014

The crews from the Mayibuye Show, Intersection and Culture Clash combined their superpowers to host a forum in Argyle Square, Carlton last weekend.  The presenters, all part of SYN Media’s Diversity Programming, discussed diverse faiths, foods and cultural expression and played some great music. There was some dancing too!

You can listen to the program on Friday 21 March – Harmony Day – from 1pm until 2pm to find out why radio is important to the young people who make it.

Tune in to SYN on your radio at 90.7 FM or online at syn.org.au
