TORONTO RADIO PROJECT is an underground Internet start-up radio station, broadcasting daily from a studio under a shop in Bloorview Village <PHOTO ABOVE – blogto>. It’s dedicated to giving a platform to this city’s booming music scene, and accolades are rolling in – from within and without the establishment.
TRP founder FRAZER LAVENDER, 29, a transplanted Londoner <PHOTO BELOW on the right>: “I liked TORONTO for all the different neighbourhoods and stuff. Obviously it’s different from LONDON, which is much bigger. But it’s what you make of it . . . I felt at home here straight away. It’s an international, cosmopolitan kind of city.”
Two months after its first broadcast, the station puts out 40 shows, all produced and hosted by volunteers, a schedule that runs live from the afternoons into the evenings on weekdays and re-streams previous broadcasts overnight. Plans are to get TRP on-air live 7 days a week.
