Buma ROCKS! online at Radio Veronica, Heavy Alternative revisited

April 25th 2016 marks the start of Buma ROCKS! Radio, the online station that can be listened to via the website of Radio Veronica. The 24/7 channel offers a varied selection of Dutch metal and hardrock, mixed with new and classic international tracks. Erik de Zwart, Station Director and dj at Radio Veronica comments: "Buma Cultuur and Buma ROCKS! promote new musical talent from the Netherlands, just like Radio Veronica does. In our programming you will hear the well-known acts, but we feature burgeoning talent in a programme like Breakthru as well. I think it’s great that we have agreed to this collaboration." On May 26th a special broadcast of Heavy Alternative is planned, presented by director of Buma Cultuur Frank Helmink and some very special guests. Heavy Alternative used to be Helmink's domain at Kink FM during the mid noughties. In this broadcast Hibakusha, this year's Buma ROCKS! showcaseband, will perform live.
