WGCU's new local music radio program on its AAA channel highlightes local singer/songwriters performing their own original works. The musicians are auditioned by Nita Flores from Southwest Florida Music. “We have a wealth of talent in Southwest Florida,” said Flores. “I believe this is a terrific project that allows not only musicians a platform but gives listeners an opportunity to hear some great original music,” she said. Gulf Coast Music will air on 90.1-2 HD and 91.7-2 HD. Gulf Coast Music is also available online at wgcu.org/listen live or with the WGCU Public Radio App that may be downloaded at wgcu.org.
Tune in for Southwest Florida's own:
Gabrielle Macafee Thursday, May 2 at 8pm, Saturday, May 4 at 10pm and Sunday, May 5 at 3pm
Gabrielle Macafee was raised around music. Her dad plays drums, while mom sings and plays piano. She’d tinker around on the piano when she was little but said, “The past couple of years I just realized that I can make music that nobody’s ever sung before or heard, and I thought that was a really cool idea.” She says she draws inspiration for her songs from her experiences. Macafee is also involved in musical theatre and says her dream role would be to play Christine in Phantom of the Opera. Macafee plays guitar and the ukulele. She’s an FGCU voice student who sings at Fort Myer’s Music Walk.
