6 January 2022 News
A further award came the way of Get Ready to ROCK! Radio presenter Pete Feenstra in late December 2021.
Pete was awarded the “Best Podcast” for his weekly Rock & Blues Show by the Wrinkly Rockers Club. The show is broadcast on the station and then posted to the Mixcloud platform.
Says Pete: “The ability to listen again to the latest show is very popular and listeners can catch up with an archive of shows going back several years. Absolutely delighted to win the WRC Best Podcast Award 2021, thanks to all who voted and above all listen.”
The Wrinkly Rockers Club (WRC) is a members-based association of music enthusiasts who organise gigs and merchandise, and promote rock and blues music via their dedicated website. The Awards are held every year.
The WRC commented: “Given Pete Feenstra has spent the last forty years listening to, writing about, talking about, and promoting Rock music, with a particular interest in the Blues, it’s no real surprise that his Rock & Blues Show has won our WRC 2021 Best Podcast award.”
Pete Feenstra was a nominee in the UK Blues Awards in 2021 and was voted ‘Best Blues Broadcaster’ in 2020.
Pete presents the Rock & Blues show on a Tuesday as part of a five-hour blues rock marathon on Get Ready to ROCK! Radio, whilst his Sunday feature shows explores an artist’s music and current album in more depth by way of interview. He also contributes reviews to the popular Get Ready to ROCK! website where he is Blues and Features Editor.
