Thanks for the Nomination!

Full Cover 1I want to thank the Veer Awards nominating panel for once again recognizing Hunter At Sunrise with a nomination for a local music award. Every year of the awards, we have been nominated which I think speaks to our ongoing dedication to the local music scene. Hunter At Sunrise will continue to present quality local music and local live acoustic sessions as part of its programming. It's been a tradition of the show since the program was Sunrise on Sunday on Bob FM and Sunrise on the Coast. Congratulations to all those nominated! I hope you too will support local music and vote in the VEER Music Awards. Here's a link to the ballot...The VEER Music Awards Ballot
