8CCC broadcast live from the Todd Mall in Alice Springs on Saturday 25 February. Our first outside broadcast of the year involved the breaking of a long loaf to celebrate the opening of The Bakery’s new premises. After some time as a pop-up bakery Saturday mornings outside the 8CCC studios in Alice Springs – with many memorable times over the months – this is quite a change for 8CCC and for The Bakery, and was celebrated in a fine style with the breaking of a giant baguette.
First time outside broadcasters, our local sports mad presenters of The Pill started off the morning. Hagar, Big Kev and Murph did a great job, including interviewing visitors using the roving mic – some of whom really weren’t quite awake yet!
Some smooth grooves followed from Cutlery with Ollie and Kyran, including a classic bit of Prince to have people grooving down that Mall.
Then another change of tempo with Mexicanosis presented by 8CCC President, Jorge and Roni – a little bit Spanish, a lot of great music and a lot of Mexico in Central Australia, including a beautiful song from Lila Downs.
Big thanks to Nicola for running the membership and merchandise stall, and to Edan for tech support throughout the day.
