Last night’s launch of the Sound of Adamsdown CD was a great success, with live performances of “Crystal Moment” by Dominique Fester and “No Blinding Light” by Steve Wride. But now we need to step up a gear to bring this fantastic album to the attention of the wider world. You can help by playing the songs at reverbnation to get the CD up one of the most important internet charts. Mentions on social media such as Facebook, Twitter and any relevant forums are also important.

So far the CD has received coverage on Radio Cardiff, the Cardiffian website and Wales Online. But it is a major disappointment that bigger players, in particular the BBC, have shown no interest in the project. The mass media are happy to report riots and other bad news in impoverished inner city communities, but are clearly not so enthusiastic to publicise a positive achievement of one such area. Can anyone seriously argue that there is no track on This is the Sound of Adamsdown good enough to play on BBC Radio Wales?

Do feel free to drop the BBC a line about it.

CDs are still available at the Communities First office on Moira Terrace, several shops on Clifton Street and many online retailers. All profits will go towards future Community projects.
