On Thur 24th, Tuned On Panel, brought to you by Punch Records, BEAT FM and URBEATZ, took place at Elevator Bar in Liverpool. A panel, consisting of both local and national music heavyweights, discussed and advised local artists on how to “break out” of your local area and achieve national and international success. The event was attended by over 120 young people from Liverpool.
The panel was chaired by Yaw Owusu (URBEATZ/the playmaker group) and included Chris Bye (Arts Council), KOF (singer-songwriter), Ray Paul (the playmaker group), Marcus Bronzy (Capital Xtra) and DJ 2Kind (7 Waves Radio). A very strong and beneficial discussion, that ended with an amazing performance by upcoming singer-songwriter, Katy Alex from LIPA.
Everton stars Ross Barkley and John Stone took to the airwaves of Liverpool’s new youth radio station to share their favourite songs with listeners.
The Blues duo joined Everton legend Graeme Sharp as guests on a special two-hour ‘Local Heroes’ show on BEAT FM, which focused on their favourite tracks and artists, which included Drake and Aviici.
Sharp hosted the show and spoke to the pair about music, fashion and their Everton careers.
“Ross and John are young players who love their football but they have a lot of other interests too so it’s great for supporters to hear about their interests and what they enjoy doing away from the training ground.
“There’s a great set-up here at the radio station and it was a pleasure for us all to come along and get involved in the project.”
BEAT FM, which broadcasts on 87.7FM, is a partner project between Everton Free School and Merseyside Black History Month Group. The radio station is run by young people, for young people across Liverpool.
Current sensations and future superstars, Ross Barkley and John Stones will host a special show on BEAT FM this Tuesday.
Ross Barkley and John Stones will present the Local Heroes show on Tuesday 22nd October between 14.00 – 16.00, where the duo will pick their favourite Urban Music tracks of all time.

You’ve probably seen our Beat FM posters, flyers and stickers around Liverpool by now which refers to the word ‘Peak’…
“If you think the word ‘Peak’ refers to the top of a mountain this station ain’t for you!”
So some of our Beat FM presenters went out and spoke to the public at the Bold Street festival to ask the public what Peak means to them.
