A MUSIC programme filmed in South Tyneside is launching a second series.
Garage Live, which aims to showcase local talent, is filmed at and funded by recording studio Garage Rehearsals in Mitre Place, South Shields, and first aired last summer.
The monthly show, which broadcasts on the internet, features interviews and live performances in the studio in front of a live audience.
The first series proved successful and Garage Rehearsals boss Chay Hobson has spent the last year making plans for a second, bigger and better run.
The producer, from Chichester, South Shields, said: “This year we wanted to have a bit of a shake-up and take the show on to the next level.
“I advertised on Facebook for presenters and had a great response, and we have a new cameraman as well.
“I’m happy with the way its going and can’t wait to hear what people think.”
The second series of Garage Live kicked off on Saturday with new presenters Rosie Winter – a singer in retro pop act Scarlet Street – and Angela Lyons, from blues and R’n’B band Shake ya Tailfeather.
Music on the first show included 14-year-old South Shields singer-songwriter Eve Simpson, Jake Houlsby, from Newcastle band Suntrapp, and bands Wood and Wire and Kildare.
Chay added: “The presenters were excellent, they got off to a great start.
“The music was all fantastic and we had a great crowd of about 50 people in to watch it.
“It was a really good atmosphere and I couldn’t be happier with how it went.
“I’ve been through all the footage now and started editing it, I’m looking forward to people seeing the finished product.”
The line-up for the next show, on October 19, features South Shields acts Arbeia and Little Red, as well as Sunderland’s Nic Wood.
