PRLog - Jun. 19, 2012 - London 19.06.2012: Leading radio indie Wise Buddah has won two Bronze awards at this year’s New York Festivals International Radio Program And Promotion Awards.

A special Twenty Minutes programme for BBC Radio 3 entitled ‘Michael Goldfarb On 9/11’ won Bronze in the Best Human Interest category while ‘Satchmo By Satchmo: The Louis Armstrong Tapes’ for BBC Radio 2 picked up the same accolade amongst nominations for Best Music Special.

‘Michael Goldfarb On 9/11’ featured American broadcaster and journalist Michael Goldfarb recounting his experience of 11 September 2001 to mark the 10th anniversary of the tragedy. Goldfarb was on live radio in America at the time the planes hit the Twin Towers and this programme features clips from that live show. ‘Michael Goldfarb On 9/11’ was produced by Julia Hayball and engineered by Wise Buddah’s Gurdeep Singh.

Paul Sexton’s ‘Satchmo By Satchmo: The Louis Armstrong Tapes’ aired in July last year. Having gained exclusive access to personal audio archive compiled by Louis Armstrong during his life from the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona, New York, Sexton created a unique programme in which Armstrong himself almost acts as narrator of his life through his archive.

Wise Buddah Head of Content Simon Willis said: "This is the third year in a row that we’ve received accolades at the New York Festivals Radio Program And Promotion Awards so congratulations to our producers and presenters. International production in an important part of Wise Buddah's content strategy so it's good to see our programming being held in such high esteem amongst our US friends."

Other Wise Buddah programmes that reached the Finalist stage at New York Festivals Radio Program And Promotion Awards were ‘Til Dealth Do Us Part’ for BBC Radio 1 in the Social Issues/Current Events category, ‘The Huey Show’ for BBC Radio 6 Music in the Best Regularly Scheduled Music Program category, and ‘Russell Davies’ for BBC Radio 2 in the Best Oldies/Nostalgia Format.
