Christchurch indie radio RDU has opened the gates to the public to vote for their Magnet Award 2019, which includes two new categories for music from Canterbury.
Over the past decade, RDU has recognised its broadcast talent with the ‘Magnet’ or ‘U’ award for volunteering, long service and performance on-air. ‘Host with the Most’, ‘Best on Show’ and ‘Service to Station’ awards give their community some recognition, highlighting the talent and dedication coming through the doors each week.
Honouring the former competitions with the same names, the ‘Roundup’ Magnet Award for best live/band track of the year and the ‘Decknology’ Magnet Award for best electronic/producer track of the year are the new awards, that will join with the ‘Strange Attractor’ Magnet award to shed some light on the most unusual yet compellingly magnetic pieces on playlist for 2019.
The award party will be held on December 7 from 6pm at The Gymnasium, Christchurch Arts Centre.
