RADIORED podcast host Andy Neil is on the hunt for ordinary Redlands locals doing extraordinary things.
RadioRED is a weekly on-demand internet radio program launched in late 2018 that features people, places and events from around the Redlands.
Wellington Point resident and RadioRED host and producer Mr Neil said the podcast was committed to unearthing local unsung heroes and sharing their stories in upcoming episodes of the show.
“Currently, (we) are on the lookout for local heroes, the quiet achievers who have been working away, often without recognition behind the scenes, helping to make our Redlands Coast an even better place to live and raise our families,” Mr Neil said.
“There are some awesome folk doing some pretty amazing stuff out there in our community, and we’re asking Redlanders to speak up and nominate people they believe are worthy of being recognised in this way.”
Locals previously featured on the show included the Cage Youth Foundation founding director Linda Grieve and Birkdale flower-seller Walter Graves.
“You might be one of these legends yourself, or you may know someone who fits this description to a tee, so please let us know about it so we can give the deserved recognition and share their inspiring stories on RadioRED,” Mr Neil said.
He added that the podcast had been met with a positive community response.
“I’ve received some really encouraging and supportive emails, with everything from compliments to suggestions as to people they’d like to hear interviewed, to offers of specific expertise in a range of areas to help build the program,” he said.
