Peninsula Run, a popular drive program on local radio RPP FM brought serious entertainment to the ‘main drag’ of Sorrento with an Outside Broadcast last Friday.
Three talented ex-radio/TV personalities presenters John McCormick, (Johnny) Andrea Donaldson (Andy) and Neil Longden(Lofty) used the OB as a ‘visual platform’ to thank local businesses for their support and sponsorship of the program and RPP FM.
There was live entertainment on the Ocean Beach Road with one of Australia’s favourite singer-songwriter Peter Cupples (who formed part of the group Stylus) busked on the streets much to onlookers amazement. Peter and Jon English are currently performing in the Spiegel Zelt Sorrento.
Listeners and passer-bys also had the chance to win fantastic give-aways generously provided by local businesses including Cakes & Ale, Moonraker Dolphin Swims, Crab Shack & Fish Fetish.
Special local business guests and/or sponsors of Peninsula Run and RPP FM contributed to the program discussing their expertise in their industry which included Jonathan Dixon of JP Dixon Real Estate, Manager of Coastcom Security, ex St.Kilda AFL player and owner of Moonraker Dolphin Swims Troy Schwarze, Noel White of Geppettos Toy Shop, Harry of Fish Fetish and Jonathan from the Crab Shack to name a few.
Peninsula Run would like to thank Baked-In Sorrento, Moonraker Dolphin Swims, Bendigo Bank, Spiegel Zelt, Fish Fetish and the Crab Shack.

A huge thank you to Production Manager Steve Meyers who always does his ‘magic’ to put us to air live and RPP FM photographer Rab Siddhi who once again braved the elements to delight visitors to the RPP FM website with his snaps that capture the moment.
