Music with Tex, saving rainforests and surviving COVID

Interested in what’s been keeping Tex Perkins busy in isolation or why a man might spend years only sporting half a beard? These are two of the latest Echo Chamber podcasts that are now live on Mandy Nolan’s Echo Chamber.

‘Legendary rocker Tex Perkins talks about how he survived Iso by creating THE SHOW – a complete visual and audio feast set in a shed on his Northern NSW property,’ explains Mandy.

Having gathered together friends and neighbours they set out to film the first three episodes on THE SHOW. The fourth will star Lucie Thorne and will air on 26 July.

From music to rainforests Jimmy HalfCut has spent years with just half a beard and he is encouraging others to try the experience at least for a short time to raise money to conserve rainforests.

‘I spoke to Jimmy to promote his partnership with Rainforest4 and the upcoming August Half Cut where 500 people are encouraged to do peer to peer fundraising to buy back Lot 155 in the Daintree,’ said Mandy.

COVID-19 – how we are surviving

Other new podcasts include a chat with local organisations on how they are surviving the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mandy talks with Richard Vinycomb the Director of the Byron Community College about how our local community college adapted to delivering courses online during COVID lockdown.

In a separate podcast Mandy explores how Bay FM survived COVID and getting back into the studio to deliver the new programming with Bay FM president Nyck Jeans and Station Manager Philip Shine.
