Local artists on OTBT

As we are required to keep a note of all our playlists at Diversity FM and with it approaching 3 years since I first got involved at the YMCA, I thought it would be interesting to compile a list of those Lancaster & Morecambe based artists who I have featured on the show (plus one or two others like April Maybe May). And if there are any local bands or singers you think should be getting airplay, please let me know! Many thanks to all those of you who have sent CD's or mp3s to us at Diversity.
