Bondi FM Buskers
Bondi FM in association with Sound School and the Bondi Winter Magic Festival will be attempting to break the current world record for the Worlds Largest Busk. On Sunday 31st of July we’ll aim to smash the current record and so will need 240 musicians to register and play for 2 hours in Bondi in order to break the Guinness World Record.
We are looking for amateur and professional musicians, one man bands, school choirs, orchestras, musical families, solo performers or small people that juggle. If you can make music then sign up today!
Every particiating busker is invited to collect money in a cap or guitar case, but we ask that a minimum of 10% of all money raised be donated to Sound School - a local charity set up to give disadvantaged children the chance to learn and play musical instruments.
There will be prizes for the best and most original acts on the day, including 15 hours of recording studio time and a chance to play live on Bondi FM’s live music show – “Monday Night Live” hosted by local musician Anthony McKeon. Every registered busker will also receive a certificate of participation. Head to the Bondi FM page to register today!

Suzanna Marie Penaflor
Bonjour Bondi. So with Tim out of the picture presenting a radio show feels a little odd. It’s almost weird, talking to yourself whilst people eat breakfast all around you, so I thought I’d get some fresh blood in the show. Two weeks in and I think I may have peaked already. Not saying the collaborative efforts of Team Bondi where not amazing but I think Miss Suzanna Marie Penaflor may have pipped them at the post.
For those who’ve met her before they’ll know just how fanatical about the local music scene this young lady really is. We first met whilst she was lending a hand to the Charlie Mayfair tour effort last year. Since then we’ve hung out a while and kept a watchful eye on one another. Stopping occasionally to share in coffee, sushi and the occasional beer on a dance floor somewhere in Sydney.
Not satisfied with organising one band at a time SMP recently staged the Not Quite Sound Relief gig at George Street Event Cinema. Playing host to Stu Larsen, Montpelier, Former Love Pirates and Set Sail. The night was an awesome success with people dancing in the aisle, bands co performing together and all dollars raised being donated to the QLD Flood victims. A truly amazing feat for both her and the team of volunteers who managed to bring the whole event together.
The budding music promoter shared her thoughts on some of the local talent that’s flooding onto the scene and took part in her very own polyphonic three choosing We Are the Bird Cage, The Paper Kites, and Stu Larsen to share with us.
Here’s a Glimpse of what went down with the full interview coming to Soundcloud soon. It’s a first for the video efforts of the Walk of Shame and something I think I’ll try more of. Let me know your thoughts.
Next week The Belligerents will be calling in for a chat on the phone before jetting down to Sydney to Play at the OAF so tune in for more gossip and top music on The Walk of Shame.

Make it this one:
The “Not Quite Sound” Relief Show
One of the greatest things about music is it’s ability to bring people together, crossing boundaries and boarders to bring happier times to those who need it most. There’s no doubt this little corner of the earth has been doing it tough lately and there have been some great efforts to help ease some of the pain, but this fund raising event deserves a special mention.
Head over here to find out the amazing line up and ticket info…
