actor Peter Hosking created Nu Country TV in 2002 after
a long stint as a DJ on our radio station during its seven-year
era at Beer Can Hill, Northcote, and Harley House at the
Paris, Texas, end of Collins St in the CBD.
The aspirant radio station began at Bundoora in 1994 with
the late former Preston mayor Bill Corrie as its embryonic
Hosking recruited fellow Nu Country FM DJS as hosts, filmed
concerts and produced-edited the first four series.
The voiceover maestro, now living in exile in Prague, handed
the reigns to Sofie Blichfeldt for Series #5.
Sofie then produced her own show Alone With Everybody
for C 31 before graduating to Rockwiz on SBS-TV.
ABC-TV 2 has picked up Alone With Everybody and commissioned
a new series - she might find time during sleep to film
celebrity hosting roles for Nu Country TV.
Her workload, including long running Ten Network soapie
Neighbours, prompted her to be succeeded by Kerry Richardson
who edited Series #6, #7 and #8.
Richardson filmed concerts while Kris Walker edited Series
Kris's successor Sean Tierney carried a hefty workload as
he took over the filming and editing of Series #10.
Sean filmed several Nu Country TV concerts including the
international showcase by Nashville singing satirist Kacey
Jones and Oklahoma stone country star Becky Hobbs.
The famed show at the Noise Bar in Brunswick on February
1, 2008, was a nominee in the Antennas - the national community
Kerry Richardson returned to editing Series #11 and #12
of Nu Country before handing the role to Peter Staubli for
Series #13, #14, #15.
Ashley Hall then edited Series #16, #17 and #18.
VIDEO CLIPS NEEDED
have been inundated with creative new video clips by the cream
of Australian artists - both mainstream and independent.
The growth of video - as a surrogate in the unlucky radio
country - has been a boon for Pay TV country channel CMC and
But we still also need more videos of international and local
artists to blend in with the concert footage and interviews.
The show is screened in Victoria, Queensland, South Australia
and New Zealand.
For editing purposes we prefer video clips in digital format,
either via a
data disc, or via download.
